..... living in a clean and tidy environment.
Wishaw and District Housing Association want all our residents to be proud of where they live and to enjoy living in a clean and tidy environment. More importantly we want to be sure that the area is safe and free of hazards.
To this end, we carry out regular inspections of buildings and estates to check that common parts are being kept in good repair and that residents are keeping their areas neat and tidy. These Estate Management inspections will be carried out more frequently where an area is experiencing particular problems.
More details on the estate management service is available in Wishaw and District Housing Association's Estate Management Policy.
One of the biggest problems we have is people not disposing of litter and bulk refuse correctly. Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that your household rubbish is put in the appropriate bins and that your bins are put out for emptying on the correct day and then returned to correct bin storage area.
Larger items such as old furniture or household appliances can be disposed of by special uplift service. This service is provided by North Lanarkshire Council allowing each residence three free uplifts per financial year. Each uplift can have up to a maximum of 10 items, excluding electrical items which are lifted separately and do not count as a special uplift. Please note there is a charge for items deemed to be refurbishment items ie. bathrooms, kitchens or laminate flooring.
To organise a special uplift, please contact North Lanarkshire Council's Cleansing Department on 01698-403110 or report through NLC’s website.
