sparked many comments. Here’s a selection...

Too many charges

"How many more charges for this, that and the next thing are this SNP administration going to introduce before Glasgow residents give them there marching orders?

Do it yourself...

If it is your bin pull it out yourself like I do and I am 66-years-old.

Welcome move

I would welcome this! Our back courts, also in West End, are overrun with rats due to lazy neighbours not taking their bins to the kerbside on collection day.

Weeks went by before the housing association eventually sent them a letter, they do it for a couple of weeks then don’t bother again.

It’s a good idea

Got to admit that I’m all in favour.

Before this changeover, our bin area was a complete pigsty, now it’s actually pretty clean.

And in fairness to Partick Housing, they did inform the residents, about a year ago, that this was going to happen. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

Paying out twice

Why should you be charged for the same service twice?

Council tax covers cleansing services, so what are the binmen being paid for if someone else is moving bins onto street for them? Public is ripped off right, left and centre yet again!
