Renfrewshire Council is making improvements to its grass cutting programme from 5 April 2021. It will be changing the way it cuts our grassed areas, open spaces, school playing fields, public parks, and cemeteries, as well as how it provides its grass cutting assistance scheme for council house tenants.

Previously the council’s teams worked separately to deliver these services, but its new approach brings them together to coordinate the delivery of the service and tackle local areas at the same time. This will increase the frequency of grass cutting Renfrewshire’s communities receive. The teams will now work to a 14-day cycle and will tackle a different area each day, although they will return to finish any sections they weren’t able to complete the previous day.

The grass in Ralston will be cut on the second Friday of the fortnightly cycle, starting on Friday April 16.

The full fortnightly timetable is shown below. This information is also available on the Renfrewshire Council website, where you can see an interactive map. This allows you to input your postcode to confirm which area you fall under and to see the schedule.

Hedge cutting will continue to be provided twice a year and will operate in line with the new grass cutting model, with communities seeing their first cut between mid-May and mid-July and their second cut between mid-August and the end of September.

If you have any questions, you can email the council’s Environment & Infrastructure department.
