Growing a Greener Glasgow


Calls for unity in Govanill over ‘rubbish rage’

After building a community garden, down a lane behind tenements in Govanhill and experiencing the mess, we decided to investigate. Our eight page newspaper, the Govanhill Gazette, documents residents’ experience of rubbish collections and fly-tipping around that block and highlights the agencies you can go to for support. The paper is available at our office or other community orientated outlets in Govanhill.
