Maryhill Housing have been informed that residents are not disposing of their rubbish in the appropriate bins and are leaving bags of rubbish and bulk items in the bin lanes.
 
This has been attracting vermin and seagulls which have been ripping bags open and spreading the rubbish.  We have notified Glasgow City Council regarding the vermin.
 
As customers will be aware, Glasgow City Council have suspended all bulk uplifts  due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  Maryhill Housing have also suspended uplifts to ensure the safety of our staff.

We must therefore request that you do not place any rubbish or bulk items in the back courts or bin lanes.  Please ensure you dispose of your rubbish using the appropriate bins.  If you have large items to dispose of, i.e. fridges/freezers/washing machines, please keep these in your property until they can be disposed of correctly.  Alternatively, when you are receiving new goods, please ensure you ask about the recycling policies of the company you have ordered these from. 
 
If Maryhill Housing establishes who is dumping items, they will be issued with a warning as this is a breach of your Tenancy/Factoring Agreement.  If you should witness any resident dumping any items, please do contact us to advise and we will investigate.
 
Maryhill Housing appreciate how difficult things are during this unprecedented time, however, we expect all residents to be mindful of others, to ensure no further issues arise and to use the correct bins provided.
