See video: TikTok stars inform Redditch residents about changes to brown bin collections

Harry Leach 16th Nov, 2020

LOCAL TikTok stars Paul and Kim are back to let Redditch residents know brown bin collections will be continuing throughout the winter.

The dad and daughter duo, who are garden waste crew members for Redditch Borough Council, went viral earlier this year for their TikTok talents.

And in their newly-released video, the pair can be seen dancing as they sweep up brown leaves to Perry Como’s ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’.

The garden waste service usually ends in November and begins again in February and March.

But, as the video highlights, due to the pandemic, this year it will continue throughout winter with only a two week break between December 21 and January 4.

The extension is to make up for the missed collections during 2020.


Coun Brandon Clayton, whose portfolio covers environmental services, said: “I have to say a huge thank you to Paul and Kim for another brilliant, light-hearted installment in their TikTok series to help get important messages out to our residents.

“All of our crews, garden waste and general waste, have continued to work extremely hard on the front line this year and deserve the thanks of the whole borough.”
