As part of our Go Local: Waste isn’t Rubbish campaign, Birmingham Friends of the Earth is calling on Birmingham City Council to introduce a greener waste system.

Birmingham needs a better waste system, to make it easier for everyone to reduce, re-use and recycle. So that Birmingham makes best use of its local resources and becomes a zero waste city.

As well as signing the campaign petition we’re asking Birmingham residents to contact their councillors to ask them to support the campaign by agreeing with the following statement:

I support Birmingham Friends of the Earth’s Waste isn’t Rubbish campaign and its call to:

1) Make it easier for people to recycle food waste, by providing a food waste collection and more support for home and community composting.

2) Make it easier for people to recycle more types of waste from home.

3) Use local companies to process our waste.

So Birmingham City Council can close Tyseley Incinerator.

We’ve prepared this template email letter which you can use when contacting your councillor. You can find you councillors on the Birmingham City Council website or by using Write to Them.
