Birmingham warning stickers put on dumped garden waste

2 May 2014 Last updated at 15:57 BST

Birmingham residents dumping garden waste are being warned they could be fined £2,500.

Warning stickers have appeared on abandoned bags of green waste and letters are being sent to suspected tippers.

In February, the Labour-controlled city council introduced a £35 annual fee for garden waste collection.

Previously covered by council tax, the charge followed a £2m reduction in the city's waste budget as part of a £102m cuts plan.
