Occasionally you may have bigger items, you no longer require, and that you wish to dispose of.
There are a couple of options for you to consider:
There are local organisations that would be pleased to receive suitable furniture items in a reasonable condition that could be used by someone else with collection from your home at no cost to you. Please check the internet to explore this further. You could consider The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice (0141 429 9884) or similar.
It is an individual resident’s responsibility to arrange the removal of their bulk refuse and this can be done by calling Tel No. 0141 287 9700 or on line via the council website.
Ensure you obtain a reference number to help track your enquiry!
Collections of bulky waste items will take up to 28 days so please ensure these items do not obstruct roads or pathways while awaiting collection.
If you are unsure of the bulk waste collection point for your home please contact the Estates Services Team on 0141 428 3245 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Under no circumstances should bulky items be left inside the common close areas of your building as this can create a potential fire hazard. Glasgow West as Property Factors have a duty under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 to review risk presented by items left in the close and take action where deemed necessary. We will endeavour to identify the party responsible for the item and provide the suitable advice in the first instance. If a contractor is instructed to dispose of bulk items or general waste we reserve the right to charge all properties in the building as a last resort.
Leaving any larger items in a public space is considered fly-tipping and can result in a fine imposed by Glasgow City Council. To report instances of fly-tipping please call The Environmental Task Force on 0300 343 7027 or report it on the MyGlasgow App.
This number also accept calls regarding on street graffiti, dog fouling or any other environmental issue you are concerned about.
By working together we can maintain a healthy, happy environment for all.
