Working in Partnership: Bin Replacement Programme

Working in Partnership: Bin Replacement Programme

The Association is delighted to report that the recent pilot of the Bin Replacement Programme (BRP) in Gardeen has produced positive benefits for residents, with a reduction in the number of missed collections, an increase in recycling and allowing residents to use the former bin stores for storage.

In February of this year, and through working in partnership with Glasgow City Council, 110 properties within Gardeen were provided with new wheeled bins earlier than scheduled. As a result of the Association’s decision to locate and secure the large bins in the rear lane, the Council provided new large residual and recycling wheeled bins to 108-112 Pendeen Road, 2-30 Pendeen Place and 22-44 Garlieston Road.

The Association continues to work in partnership with the Council to provide support to residents to further increase recycling rates. For further information on the BRP and all council recycling services, please visit the Glasgow City Council website:
