Waste piles up in city amid bin strike – BBC News
Bags of rubbish are piling up in the streets of Birmingham as bin collectors are on strike.
Hundreds of thousands of people are affected and collections have been disrupted for weeks.
This pile of waste was outside Abbas Hussain’s estate agents in Stratford Road, Sparkhill, and he said it was affecting his business.
“My customers… all of them are complaining every single day, we can’t come to your place, it’s quite stinky.”
Refuse workers are set to strike until 1 September. From Friday, striking workers increased their industrial action from two to three hours a day.
