A strike by refuse staff and street cleaners in Glasgow has begun as world leaders arrive for the COP26 climate summit.

The union GMB Scotland said its members in the city council's cleansing department would be striking for the period up to and including 8 November 2021.

These Frequently Asked Questions advise that “depots” ('Household Waste Recycling Centres') are open, but there may be picket lines in operation.
