When will bins in Glasgow be collected at New Year?

Blue, green and brown bins are also not being collected on either New Year’s Day or on January 2.

Those who are due to have their bins collected on the first day of 2022 will have to wait until January 3rd, while those due to have them emptied on the 2nd will have to wait until the 4th.

What if I live in a flat in Glasgow?

Glasgow City Council says that those who live in flats or tenements will have their bins collected - however, it might be on a different day than usual.
