Bulky Waste Collection

If you are a main door tenant and require a bulky waste collection, you can contact Glasgow City Council on 0141 287 9700 on Tuesday and Wednesday between 9am - 3pm to place a request.  This is a chargeable service and more information can be found on Glasgow City Council's website here.

Wheelie Bin Cleaning

If you are a main door tenant, your general waste wheelie bin is cleaned by our contractor quarterly.  The cleaning dates are scheduled in-line with the collection days by Glasgow City Council which are normally a Tuesday.  It isn't always possible to have the clean fully complete on the same day.  This means the cleaning may run into the following day, we would ask tenants to re-present your bins on the pavement if your bin hasn't been cleaned on collection day.

The cleaning dates for 2023 are detailed below: 

7th February 2023
2nd May 2023
15th August 2023
7th November 2023
