I was on my way to my surgery in Dalmarnock last Tuesday when I heard a rumble thump noise - new composting bins were being literally rolled out in the area.

This is part of the Council's drive to improve Glasgow's woeful recycling record, and a move I fully support. Householders will be able to put garden waste (grass and hedge clippings, leaves, branches, weeds and even Christmas trees!) into the bin, which will then be collected on a fortnightly basis. They'll be collected on Fridays between 1.30pm and 10pm, which makes extra use of Glasgow's bin lorries.

If you have any comments or problems with the bins, let me know, or call the Customer Care Centre on 287 9700.
