TEN YEARS PAST

Evening Times - - FAMOUS FACES IN GLASGLOW -

DO­MES­TIC refuse pil­ing up on the streets of Glas­gow was be­ing col­lected for the first time by pri­vate firms in­stead of city coun­cil staff. A stag­ger­ing 12,000 com­plaints were re­ceived by Glas­gow City Coun­cil over missed col­lec­tions. Now, af­ter weeks of pub­lic com­plaints, pri­vate com­pa­nies em­ployed by the coun­cil are col­lect­ing bulk refuse across the city while those lo­cal au­thor­ity crews pre­vi­ously car­ry­ing out this task have been re­de­ployed to col­lect the back­log.
