Glasgow City Council are making improvements to recycling services across the city. These improvements will increase the level of service offered to all residents in kerbside, tenement and flatted properties meaning we can avoid sending more of our household waste to landfill and help contribute to the aims of the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste Plan.
The changes include:
- The introduction of a food waste recycling service to kerbside properties between January and March 2016;
- Improving infrastructure in flats and tenements to help residents to use the communal blue bin recycling service more easily;
- The introduction of a food waste recycling service to flats and tenements between April 2016 and March 2017.
By collecting food waste the council can recover value from it when it is recycled and turned into agricultural fertiliser or energy. Whether you live in a flat, tenement or kerbside property the council will contact you in advance prior to any changes taking place. Glasgow City Council will also be launching a city wide campaign in early 2016 to ensure everyone knows how to recycle and use their existing and new recycling services.
