See video: TikTok stars Paul and Kim inform Bromsgrove residents about changes to brown bin collections

Harry Leach 16th Nov, 2020

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

The dad and daughter duo, who are garden waste crew members for Bromsgrove District 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 Margaret Sherrey, whose portfolio covers environmental services, said: “It’s wonderful to see some light-hearted fun in what has been, for many, quite a dark year.

“A big thank you to Paul and Kim who have put their inhibitions aside to get this fantastic message out to residents.

“All of our crews, garden waste and general waste, have worked extremely hard on the front line this year and we cannot thank them enough.”
