What a difference a day makes

Joe and the campaign team collecting rubbish

Parts of the Bournbrook and Selly Park ward are looking much brighter now thanks to a big community clear up.

At the weekend, Joe joined local residents on a litter pick on the streets of Bournbrook. In just an hour, the team managed to collect an amazing 20 bags of rubbish from just two roads, making a massive difference to the area.

As a local resident, Joe knows only too well about the problem with litter, and doorstep conversations have confirmed that many people are fed up with the rubbish. 

Joe said “So many residents have raised the issue of fly tipping and litter with me. It’s a widespread problem for our area, which is only going to be exacerbated by Birmingham Labour’s cuts to waste disposal and street cleaning. I will continue to be proactive in our community and fight to keep council funding for weekly bin collections.”

He had some helpful advice for residents who want more action to be taken:

“Everyone can play their part to keep our area tidy by reporting fly tipping on Fix My Street. This will alert council officers to the problem and will hopefully end in the waste’s removal".

The by-election is on Thursday 2 May. A vote for Joe Norris is a vote for further action to clean up the area.
