The flats around me are already cluttered up with old carpets and pieces of furniture, some of which have been lying there for weeks awaiting collection.
Presumably those who threw it out called the council to have it uplifted and are still waiting. But what if they had to pay - would they bother? Probably not.

I URGE Councillor Alastair Watson of Land and Environment services to reconsider charging for bulk uplifts.
Glasgow City Council has made considerable progress over the last few years in improving the cleanliness of the city and making it cleaner, safer, better and more beautiful.
This policy would be detrimental to such award winning campaigns as Clean Glasgow and Streets Ahead. It will also make the City look like the third world, with sofas and fridges being fly-tipped everywhere.

What are the City Council thinking about by considering to to introduce new charges for bulk refuse uplift? I understand that they must make savings and look at ideas for income generation but to introduce charges to householders to take away large items like old suites is folly and will only turn Glasgow into a fly-tipping nightmare. Has no- one considered the increased cost to the Council of getting rid of large items of fly tipped rubbish. So come on Council, see the bigger picture. This daft idea fllies in the face of its own much-publicised existing policies and the Streets Ahead campaign.

Re your feature on Barr & Stroud. I think it is worth pointing out that the photo you show of the original premises with the staff posing outside for the company group photo is actually in trendy Ashton lane just off Byres Road in the West End.
