Waste Types



Waste Containers 

Commercial Wheeled Bins

Our wheeled bins and containers come in a range of sizes from 240 litres to 1280 litres capacity. The 660, 1100 and 1280 litre bins are manufactured from pressed steel and sizes upwards of 500 litres have lockable lids that ensure the security of the waste and minimises spillage.

To discuss your requirements, arrange or amend your wheeled bin service please contact Commercial Services.

Please Note:

  • Bins should be stored inside your premises and presented at the kerbside on your allocated collection day/time.
  • To avoid enforcement action, bins lids must be closed. 
  • Bins may will not be uplifted if they are contaminated with other waste types.

Trade Waste Sacks

Where space is limited, trade waste sacks can fulfil business requirements. We can provide you with trade sacks for general waste and dry mixed recycling (DMR).

Waste Containers Presentation Guidance

Businesses are reminded that Glasgow City Council operates a strict policy that waste is only permitted on the public domain for up to 1 hour each day. Commercial Services customers must adhere to the collection hour that was originally advised for each waste stream.  More information is available here

On your presentation day and time:

  • Sacks should be presented outside your premises at your allocated day and time.
  • Sacks must not be left out before or after these times. 
  • They should be taken back inside and returned outside on your next allocated day and time.
