The streets of Birmingham are piling up with rubbish and fly-tipped waste.

Mattresses, fridge-freezers, cardboard boxes, old sofas and countless rubbish bags are being dumped.

In Alum Rock, mounds of fly-tipped waste has been dumped on roads in and around Cherrywood Road.

After the Birmingham bins strike ended, a dispute which had seen bags piling up on the street, people are still filling the streets with rubbish.

City council bosses approved settlements worth £3,500 each to striking workers in order to end the ‘secret payments’ dispute.

A spokesman for the Alum Rock Community Forum highlighted the rubbish piles and branded the local area “a huge tip site”.

“Sunday drive around Alum Rock, the area is a huge tip everywhere you look,” said a spokesman.

“Many more hot spots created by scum fly-tippers.

“Cherrywood Road and linking roads area a huge tip site, also rubbish everywhere. What is going on?”

A Twitter user said: “Used toilets Cherrywood Road B9 4UR, just off Fordrough Lane B9 5LE, flung into the street.

“The area is a disgrace with mattresses & abandoned vehicles everywhere.

“Kids live in nearby properties thus are in constant danger from fly-tipping. Never changes.”

The Birmingham City Council customer service account – @BCC_Help – has been inundated with complaints over the last few days.
