The public have been advised not to use Dawsholm Recycling Centre until further notice.

A number of police officers were at the centre on Dawsholm Road on Sunday morning.

The entrance to the facility is taped off and several police vehicles were seen outside.

A member of the public said workmen were unable to get on to the premises.

The man was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of what has happened.”

Glasgow City Council issued advice to the public on social media.


A tweet read: “Please note that #DawsholmRecyclingCentre will be closed tomorrow, Sunday 12 September.  

“We will provide information on reopening as soon as we can.”

The centre has been disrupted in recent weeks following a fire in the main shed in the summer.

Residents have had to drive bulk items and general waste to other centres in the city.
