Maybe we need to show people of Birmingham the kinds of things that are made out of recycling and the cost to produce the same item from scratch. This would show the benefits and cost savings of recycling.


continued education of school children to help embed the benefits of recycling.


all local businesses should look at packaging of their products and challenge suppliers on reducing excess packaging or making it more environmentally friendly. 

Why the contribution is important

If people do not feel involved or informed then they are less likely to take part.

    perhaps adding to your comments if the council showed figures on a monthly basis... waste collected by ward , amount recycled paper, glass , landfill tonnage and cost, money saved, etc
    Maybe a "best ward" prize each month... then local people deciding what charity or local good cause to give the prize to through a web link/councillors.
