Dos and don’ts when it comes to bins

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Coun­cil chiefs are re­mind­ing the pub­lic about the dos and don’ts when it comes to rub­bish col­lec­tion.

The wheeled bin refuse col­lec­tion ser­vice South La­nark­shire Coun­cil pro­vide en­sures that waste is se­cured in a closed con­tainer.

Ad­vice for the pub­lic is to: en­sure your bin is pre­sented at the col­lec­tion point be­fore 7am on the up­lift day; en­sure the lid is closed and the han­dles are fac­ing the road; place your bin next to your neigh­bours, where pos­si­ble; and en­sure that all refuse is con­tained within the bin.

And res­i­dents are also be­ing asked to: not po­si­tion your bin so as to cause an ob­struc­tion to pedes­tri­ans or road users; not put hot ashes, paint or rub­ble in your bin; not to leave ad­di­tional refuse be­side your bin as it will not be up­lifted.

Only one bin per house­hold will be emp­tied, so please do not present more than one bin, as it will not be emp­tied.

A coun­cil spokesper­son said: “By fol­low­ing these sim­ple rec­om­men­da­tions, you will as­sist us in pro­vid­ing a timely and ef­fi­cient ser­vice.”

For as­sis­tance with the dis­posal of med­i­cal waste please con­tact the cus­tomer ser­vices cen­tre on 0303 123 1020. If all mem­bers of your house­hold are med­i­cally un­fit and re­quire help pre­sent­ing your bin, you can com­plete a wheeled bin as­sis­tance form.

To do that, and to also ar­range a spe­cial bulk or gar­den waste up­lift, go on­line to south­la­nark­shire.gov.uk and go to the ‘bins and re­cy­cling’ sec­tion.

Bin it!
