The transfer of call handling to the Customer Care Centre is part of the drive by Glasgow City Council to provide a robust and efficient service to the residents of Glasgow.

The Customer Care Centre advisers answer the calls on behalf of Cleansing and Recycling. The calls cover a range of issues including requests for:

The Customer Care Centre advisers will obtain all the relevant information required to action the request. This information is then passed to the appropriate LES Cleansing or Recycling depot. The depot staff then take responsibility for actioning the request.

The Customer Care Centre is also able to track the progress of requests through to completion. This means that the Customer Care Centre is able to provide updates to citizens if they call to enquire about the progress of their request.
