Letters were received by some Dennistoun residents (see attached photos) relating to the food waste collection in flats, which seemed even vaguer than letters that have also just come out recently in Dennistoun around bins being moved from back courts out on to the streets. This one states “Your food waste bin has been removed from the bin area due to health and safety reasons (i.e. persistent contamination or unsafe for our collection crews to empty the bins from your property).” No dates were given, nor any point of contact.

The Council is aware increasing numbers of people in Glasgow are experiencing difficulties – physically and economically – accessing sufficient, safe and nutritious food. It also knows of a wide range of organisations and charities are responding to those experiencing acute food insecurity – including an established community food sector.
