Today, Councillor Peter McDonald Leader of Bromsgrove Labour Group has called for the Re-opening of local household recycling centre’s.

Peter has stated: “It is important that local authorities maintain that local tips are still open to the public to prevent fly tipping and unnecessary bonfires: in doing so protecting the local environment and public health.

However, we need to recognise the pressures that the current corona virus pandemic is placing upon local authorities, and that social distancing measures are maintain while residents are dumping their rubbish.

Therefore, Bromsgrove Labour Group is calling upon the County Council to reopen the local tip to prevent any build up of waste that could be harmful to local amenity and public health.”
