City Council Bins and Bulk

The domestic refuse collection service is currently continuing as normal, with WS Estate Services tidying up the back courts and bin stores once Glasgow City Council have emptied the bins. However, if you experience problems with your bins not being emptied you can report this by phoning Glasgow City Council on 0141 287 9700, by completing the on line form on the Council’s website or by downloading the MyGlasgow app.  

Glasgow City Council has issued new information on their bulk waste collection.  The Council are moving to a request only service (10 items maximum) details of which can be found in the highlighted article, which means the bulk will no longer be collected on a designated day.  Although WS Estate Services did assist our residents by clearing hot spots during the summer and autumn, they do not have the capacity to simply replace the Council's previous service.  We will be formulating plans over the coming weeks as to how we deal with the bulk which will inevitably end up uncollected on our pavements due to the introduction of the Council's new service.  The Council are also intending to charge residents for the bulk collection service from April 2021; if you wish to question these changes then please contact your Local Councillor.

We would also take this opportunity to ask all our tenants to help maintain common areas and the general environment as safe and tidy as possible by ensuring that, particularly during these difficult times, all domestic refuse is properly bagged and deposited in the bins located in the bin stores and that, where necessary, bulk items are placed as safely and tidily as possible in the back court area in order to present the minimum of disruption and inconvenience to residents.
