Bottle Watch Scheme
18 October 2008
Kings Heath South and Stirchley Neighbourhood Team are working
together with the council to run a bottle watch scheme over the next few weeks.
Five off licences in the Stirchley, Vicarage Road, and Allens Croft area
have agreed to take part. Each off licence has marked certain bottles and cans they
What we are asking yourselves to do is when you are out and about in your neighbourhoods
to check the parks, street corners and areas where you are aware people may be
congregating and drinking in the street and if you see discarded bottles and cans
with numbered blue stickers on the bottom to please let us know when and where you
have seen them.
If the experiment shows that a number of these bottles/cans are being brought at a certain
off licence we can then work with the off licence staff to identify the persons buying the
alcohol and try to prevent it being passed to under age and anti social street drinkers.
