Your bin collection service never stops – but please help your refuse collectors!

Glasgow City Council are continuing to collect rubbish and clean streets, though many normal arrangements have changed because of the coronavirus crisis. Spare a thought for the operatives. They cannot consistently practise safe social distancing measures. They are being approached by members of the public more frequently than usual to inquire about collection, undermining some of their efforts to practice social distancing. Ask the Council about collection queries, not the front-line staff. Below, we have covered the main changes that we are aware of to help you. Be warned – if a member of the public does not stand away from their bin at the required two metres distance, that waste may not get collected. Help keep these heroes safe at work. Read more
