Dear Birmingham City Council,

I wish to see a manifest of all the refuse bins, including recycling bins if possible, within Birmingham city centre and their subsequent location whether coordinates or otherwise.

I am curious at to the distribution of recycling bins available to the public, in comparison to black landfill bins. It seems that many shops in the city centre sell drinks and food within recyclable bottles and packaging however this material ends up in landfill due to the scarcity of available recycling bins.

I wish to use this information to guide the public to their nearest suitable recycling bin instead of using landfill waste bins.

Yours faithfully,
Ryan Underwood.
