Rubery councillors hit out at recycling unit on Rednal Hill Lane being a 'danger to drivers and pedestrians'

Harry Leach 9th Dec, 2018

A RECYCLING container which appeared on the side of Rednal Hill Lane has been labelled a danger to both road users and pedestrians by Rubery councillors.

The container was placed outside the Lifestyle Express shop by recycling organisation Green Global and Worcestershire County Council just under a month ago.

It is used to recycle clothes and shoes but Coun Peter McDonald and Coun Christine McDonald are not happy with its position on the street.

Coun Peter McDonald said: “First of all it’s blocking the visibility of drivers exiting Belmont Road and secondly it’s a hazard to pedestrians.

“I have asked Worcestershire County Council to take immediate action and remove the container.

“They are a bunch of cowboys who wilfully obstruct the pavement and put everyone at risk.”

Coun Christine McDonald believes action should be taken to move it to a safer position.

A spokesperson for Green Global said: “Our team gained permission from Mr Shakti from Lifestyle Express on the September 28.

“He authorised the bank to be placed next to the black dustbin.

“The bank has been moved from its actual position and would not be placed where it can cause restrictions.

“We will make sure it gets put back in the right place.”
