Litter appears to be an ever increasing issue within our community and over a number of months and years, we have been trying to replace the pole mounted bins with new larger volume free standing bins (see image). We have been informed by Glasgow City Council that our area is scheduled to receive these new bins in early 2019.
At this time we do not have a schedule of where the new bins will be located, however, we have asked to be consulted before they are rolled out. We are also seeking confirmation that the bins will have ‘smart’ technology – which enables the bin to send a signal to the depot when it is 3/4 full and requires emptying.
We have asked the City Council if we could have our own poster asking people not to drop litter however, at this time, we are not allowed due to branding guidelines.
In the meantime, if you have any ideas where these bins should be located please leave a comment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org
