Don't let fly-tippers spoil our great city

ALL over Glasgow in our streets and communities people are making huge efforts to make the city a cleaner and better place to live.

We see those efforts and know how much they are valued by others and we help recognise them in our Streets Ahead campaign and Community Champions awards.

So it is extremely disheartening, frustrating and infuriating for everyone who cares about the city to see the level of fly tipping that exists in some of the city's streets.

There are specific days for bin collections and bulk uplifts can be arranged for items too large for the normal bins meaning fly-tipping on our streets is completely unnecessary.

The examples we highlight today are an eyesore and represent the laziness of those unwilling to make the effort to have it uplifted.

Attempts to reduce fly-tipping have made some inroads to the problem in the worst offending streets, but until it is stamped out completely then more action is required.

There are arrangements for reporting incidents of illegal dumping and those responsible can be taken to task by the authorities.

Those of us who care about the appearance and public health of our city can work together to ensure the streets are kept clean and safe for all.
