Glasgow is set to have the largest fleet of hydrogen-powered bin lorries in the world after councillors agreed a £10.5m funding package. The council will buy 19 hydrogen refuse collection vehicles, using £7m from a climate emergency fund.
Glasgow City Council is to make the discretionary funding available to businesses in the city affected by restrictions in place as a result of the pandemic. This is the second phase of such discretionary funding made available in 2021.
The Strategy, which was launched in 2018, was developed through a partnership with public, private, academic and voluntary sectors, and has been key to helping schools, pupils and families during lockdown.
