Just last week the SNP’s group leader Susan Aitken claimed the city “looked great" but that is not the opinion of Glaswegians who have to cope with litter-strewn streets, bins overflowing and instances of fly-tipping continuing to increase.
Enough is enough and something has to change. The introduction of the bulk uplift charge last week thanks to the SNP and Greens joining forces will do nothing to fix Glasgow’s cleansing crisis.
Instead, it risks exacerbating the problem as well as penalising those on low incomes and likely lead to even more fly-tipping over the city.
We urge people from across Glasgow to stand with us, sign the petition and call on the SNP to think again.
