THE wheelie bins which are set to replace black-bag collections have received criticism, but Solihull Council wants residents to view the new products before they reach doorsteps on September 21.

The council will be providing around 78,000 residents with the 140-litre black wheelie bins for waste which cannot be recycled.

Prototypes are now on view in the Soli­hull Connect walk-in centre at Library Square in Solihull and Chelmsley Wood area housing office in Coppice Way, Chelmsley Wood.

Cabinet member for community services, Councillor Mrs Kate Wild said householders should be able to recycle about half of their household rubbish with the new system.

“Anybody with concerns about the size of the bin or about being able to move it can give us a call as we may be able to make special arrangements,” she said.
