Our Estate Caretaker regularly inspects our area, checking gardens, closes, back courts and common areas.
These inspections are provided to ascertain any problems in the area in relation to litter, graffiti and repairs. Problems will be remedied as swiftly as possible to ensure that the Co-operative area looks in good condition, but it is the tenant’s responsibility to keep gardens neat and tidy. You can achieve this by cutting your grass on a regular basis, weed control, keeping back courts/front gardens tidy by picking up any litter/debris, and disallowing pets to foul in garden areas. Failure to administer these basic steps can result in action being taken by Drumchapel Housing Co-operative.
WHEELIE BIN CLEANING
General waste bins should always be preserved to avoid becoming unsightly or attracting vermin. Furthermore, a wheelie bin cleaning service is provided on a quarterly basis by our contractors. This service is provided on the following dates:
• 3rd July 2018 (delayed until 17th July)
• 9th October 2018
• 15th January 2019
• 9th April 2019
Tenants are encouraged to recycle as much waste as they can. A fortnightly collection from Glasgow City Council is supplied providing all rubbish bags are put inside wheelie bins.
• Blue bins are provided for paper, cardboard, tins, cans, and recycling bottles.
• Brown bins are used for garden waste.
• Purple bins are supplied to collect glass bottles and jars.
Glasgow City Council provide a free graffiti removal service for communal areas. It is important to you as tenants as much as it is to us as your landlord to keep the area looking aesthetically pleasing, and you can help maintain this by reporting graffiti by calling 0800 027 7027.
Tenants are not permitted to keep more than one dog or breed dogs. Existing tenants who have permission to keep two dogs prior to date of this policy will be allowed to retain both dogs however on the death or loss of one of the dogs, permission will not be given to replace this dog.
A pet register is maintained by the Co-operative. Written permission must be sought by tenants who wish to bring a pet into the home by filling out our Pet Registration form.
