On Monday 12th June the Association worked alongside Glasgow City Council, Auchenshuggle Community Council and Tollcross Community Trust to launch a new Litter Hub at Tollcross Advice & Learning Centre, 84 Braidfauld Street, G32 8PJ that is available for the community to use.
There was a great turn out on the day, with pupils from both Wellshot and St. Paul’s Primary Schools, elected members and staff from Tollcross Co-op joining us on the day.
27 bags of litter were then taken away by GCC followed by everyone having a well-deserved rest and refreshments at the Centre
The Hub is the first in the East End and is among the first to carry a new QR code which enables people to scan it and log the amount and types of litter they have collected as well as highlighting any
hotspots sites. GCC will use this information to target its resources to tackle litter problems in the community.
The Hub contains litter pickers, black bags, gloves and hi-vis vests. Local people can borrow the equipment by contacting the Centre on 0141 764 1234 or emailing email@example.com.
The Centre’s annual Tidy Tollcross Together event already receives good support from the local community and the new Hub will make it easier for people to access equipment and carry out more events.
