The Four signals of the city were reopened at 11:00 BST at that time 150 cars appeared at one time by 08:00.
Birmingham City Council said, “residents should only go out to the waste centers when they needed” Otherwise residents should have to keep themselves in their homes.
As they already knew about this situation will happen after reopening the lockdown, they called the police to handle the traffic, which council said we already planned in advance.
The authority said The recycling sites were expected to be busy after reopening the lockdown, These places are located at Norris Way in Sutton Coldfield, James Road in Tyseley, Holford Drive in Perry Barr and Lifford Lane in Kings Norton.

On Tuesday, councilor John O’Shea, cabinet member for street scene and parks, said that “We are looking for those residents who can use this services wisely and patiently”.
He advised the community, “The normal services will be restored as soon as possible. I must state that the only concern is these sites is busy schedule. I recommend to the residents they must have to delay their visits unless of the case if they don’t have the second option”.
