Current delays

There are currently no delays with waste collections in the Edinburgh area.

Garden waste collections are now on the Winter Schedule.  Please check the calendar for your scheduled uplift.

If you use the new recycling service, your bin and blue box will be emptied at different times on the same day. Please ensure that plastic bags, crisp packets and tissues are not put into the green recycling wheeled bin. Items that cannot be recycled should be put in the grey wheeled bin.

Please continue to put out electrical items and textiles with the blue box.

Please ensure that bins and boxes are out by 6am, collections run until 10pm. If they are not emptied on your collection day, please report it to us.

Find your collection days online.
