Waste worker suspended for media tip-off – Green Bin Tax

Birmingham City Council has confirmed that it suspended a recycling depot worker after he tipped off the media over unpopular garden waste charges. A £35 annual fee for garden waste collection was introduced by the council in February, which led to some residents dumping waste on the streets. GMB organiser Gillian Whittaker described the action against the worker as “disgusting”.
