Increase in flytipping

We have noticed a real increase in flytipping across Balsall Heath and Sparkbrook particularly in our parks.

We ask if residents have “eyes on ”  if they are self isolating or observing the government instruction to stay at home during the corona virus crisis if you obseve  vehicles pull up and fly tip please forward any information that we will then forward to Birmingham City Council. This criminal practice impacts our environment and costs the tax payer huge sums of  money in clean up bills.
