Glasgow’s landmark park sends litter underground

Glasgow’s landmark park sends litter underground

Kelvingrove Park is 85 acres of parkland located in the West End of Glasgow. It’s both picturesque and very busy. Its central location makes it a popular route for commuters to the city centre and popular with dog walkers, as well as students from the nearby University of Glasgow. Traditional post or standing bins struggle to cope with the volume of rubbish where there are large number of people. Stand-alone semi-underground collection points provide an effective alternative and flexibility around where the systems can be sited make them ideal where there’s limited space or restricted access. Semi underground collection points have their greater portion placed underground, with only the inlets above the surface, so they’re also an ideal anywhere there are lots of people generating waste on the move. They also offer opportunities to segregate recyclable materials at the point at which they’re thrown away and more waste can be stored, and then moved with less frequent use of vehicles. Additional advantages include fewer odours, the confinement of bacteria, increased compaction, improved street, neighbourhood and park aesthetics, limited maintenance requirements and more protection against vandalism.

I was told that the reduction in working hours...
