Waste Management

Waste Management

For Missed Bin Collections and Bulk Uplift

Call Glasgow City Council on 0141 287 9700, or report online via their website. Ensure you have a reference number and follow their instructions. If as Factor we are asked to appoint a contractor to remove Bulk Items / Attend to issues of incorrect rubbish disposal all residents in the common area will be charged and issued with a guidance note on what to do in future.

Do You Sub-Let?

As Landlord it is your responsibility to ensure that your tenants are aware of waste disposal procedures; that they have a back door keys and/or bin store key. Owners with short-lease tenants should take measures and responsibility for addressing and disposing of bulk which is often dumped in common areas at the end of tenancies. If you don’t your neighbours will share in the cost for returning the area to an acceptable condition. 

Home Improvements

Owners undertaking home improvements must make their own arrangements for disposal of building waste and debris and refrain from using normal domestic waste collection areas.

Blocked Drains

Blocked drain call out are increasing mainly due to flushing of inappropriate items down the toilet & sinks. This can result in burst pipes, waste backing up through the drains and causes very unpleasant smells. Please dispose of items correctly to prevent and reduce cost.

Rubbish and Bulk Disposal

There has been a noticeable increase in the amount of rubbish and bulk not being disposed of correctly. Bags or items left out with the bins will not be collected by Glasgow City Council. Recycling and food waste bins must be used in the correct manner or risk collection being refused. It is your responsibility to dispose of household waste correctly.  Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Bulky Waste Collection

Following the withdrawal of the traditional Glasgow City Council Bulky Waste collection service, we are pleased to confirm that we are working in partnership with Total Homes to address the current fly tipping issues, and to pilot a sustainable bulk waste management service to help improve our neighbourhoods, proactively address health and safety concerns and promote fire safety. 

Over the coming months this will include: 

  • Adopting and promoting Recover, Reduce, Repair, Reuse, and Recycling principles
  • Items being collected and sorted rather than going direct to landfill
  • Exploring the operational challenges of implementing this service
  • Developing our frontline process and procedures
  • Promotion and guidance through social media, and newsletters.

For more information on Total Homes please check out their website: https://www.total-homes.com/. As we work to get this initiative underway please utilise the on-demand service that is provided by Glasgow City Council checking https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/bulkywaste for guidance and service updates.

Waste Disposal and Collection

It is your responsibility to dispose of household waste correctly and keep your backcourt area clean and tidy. Any additional ground maintenance visits by our contractor due to incorrect disposal of household waste or bulk refuse will incur an additional charge to all residents.

All household waste should be placed in black bags, tied securely and placed in to the bins provided. Bags or items left out with the bins will not be collected by Glasgow City Council’s Land and Environmental Services Department.
