I am a commercial business affected by the Cycling Road Race and Cycling Time Trial events - how do I dispose of my commercial waste?

For businesses who leave commercial bags or bins on the street for uplift, please be aware that due to road closures your current waste supplier may not be able to gain access during your uplift window. You should contact your waste supplier to arrange for commercial collection once the road closures have been uplifted.

I am a business on George Square - what happens to my waste collection?

As we realise this is an inconvenience, Festival 2018 is providing general waste commercial bins on the pavement around George Square for commercial businesses to use.
