As a Birmingham resident I'm very concerned about our poor levels of recycling. Are there even any bottle banks in the city centre? What is your view on recycling and how would you improve matters if elected as our councillor?

The Conservative-led Council has set some demanding recycling targets for the next twelve months in a concerted effort to improve the amount we do in Birmingham. As for bottle banks, there are a few around the city centre, for example at Tesco's at Five Ways. However, I think we need to do more and we should be aiming to offer some kind of recycling facility to 100% of residents. Hope to see you at the meeting.
