Keeping the city clean

Birmingham will be at the centre of the world stage during the 2022 Commonwealth Games, with many people visiting the city for the first time.

Birmingham City Council is working to create an attractive and welcoming environment for everyone, ensuring that the city is presented at its very best. You may notice a number of new public realm schemes and enhancements in the coming months to improve our public spaces.

Throughout the Games period bin collections, street cleaning works and other daily essential maintenance will continue as normal, however there may be some changes to collection times which will be communicated nearer to the Games period.
