From Monday 5 July 2021 Glasgow City Council (GCC) are introducing charges for collection of household bulky waste.
This decision brings Glasgow into line with the vast majority of Scottish local authorities, where charging for uplifting bulky items is a standard feature of their waste management services.
Requiring householders to pay for large items to be collected is also consistent with the Council’s new Resource and Recycling Strategy 2020-30 and ‘empowering Glasgow to become a zero-waste city’.
Charging aims to change the way citizens think about resources. By assigning value to bulky items we aim to encourage residents to reduce the amount of waste they produce or find other ways for items to be reused where possible. Extending the useful life of bulky items will help reduce Glasgow’s carbon footprint and help support the city’s aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.
