The new enforcement officers are warning those who let their dogs foul in streets and backcourts, drop litter, dump rubbish and graffiti property that they face fines, court action and even eviction.
As part of their campaign of tough action, the new squad – which is currently operating across the city – will work with Glasgow City Council to issue penalties to those who treat communal areas like dirty dumping grounds with disgusting dog dirt and litter.
The enforcement officers are the most recent phase of a £50million GHA plan to bring its housing estates and streets up to scratch and create cleaner and safer communities across the city.
The enforcement officers are also working with other local housing associations and local schools and hope to start up litter patrols.
Thomas added: "These will help to keep the local areas tidy as well as educating the kids about keeping their neighbourhoods clean."
GHA, which is Scotland's largest social landlord with 43,000 homes, decided to recruit the team in response to feedback from tenants, homeowners and staff who say more needs to be done to clean up communities.
Gordon Matheson, Glasgow City Council leader and chairman of anti-litter campaign Clean Glasgow, recently joined some of the new recruits in Brand Street in Govan.
