Over the coming months Glasgow City Council will be providing new wheelie bins to residents within Garscadden/Scotstounhill ward as part of the Bin Replacement Programme (BRP).

Through the city-wide programme, the Council is replacing the small metal dustbins used for general waste with new wheelie bins.  The BRP will also review recycling bin provision to ensure sufficient capacity is available to residents to increase their recycling.

The programme will be undertaken in three phases over a three year period and is programmed to be complete in the ward over two phases.  For those properties in G13 postcodes, the programme is currently underway and will be complete by the end of March 2018 (Phase 1) and for those properties in G14 postcodes, the programme will commence in April 2018 and be complete by end of March 2019 (Phase 2).

The programme will bring a number of benefits to residents in the local community by improving containment of general waste, the condition of backcourts and increasing opportunities for residents to recycle.

At the most recent Area Partnership meeting, the Council outlined their plans for local BRP roadshows in the ward for residents to discuss the programme face-to-face with officers from Land and Environmental Services.  These roadshows will be advertised to ensure that all residents have an opportunity to attend and we will place details of these on our website.

DRCET will be working in partnership with Glasgow City Council to make sure local residents and communities are well informed about the BRP and working to make our local community a better place to live for all residents.
