Bin Hub Pilot

Bin Hub Pilot

We are trialling a new approach to the collection of household waste from tenement flats that will involve placing new, purpose-built bin-hubs at the front of properties.

Parts of Pollokshields, Haghill and Anderston have been selected for inclusion in the pilot programme, which is due to start in Pollokshields this summer and is expected to last for a year.

These areas have been included in the programme due to safety issues faced by our staff when collecting bins from back courts or back lanes. Moving bins to the street will deal with the safety issue but it also give us a chance to expand the range of recycling options available to residents in tenements and flats.

The new approach will see bins emptied more frequently and we believe it will reduce missed bin collections while also helping residents to keep their back courts in better condition.

We hope these frequently asked questions assist with any questions you may have. Householders in the areas for the pilot programme will be contacted directly in due course with further information on how the new approach will be rolled out. We will also be looking for feedback on the pilot programme from residents.
