Delays to rubbish and recycling collections

Friday 14 June at 5 pm

There are currently delays with kerbside collections in the following areas:

  • Grey bins (household waste): Magdalene, Bingham, Portobello, Greenend, Yewlands and Liberton
  • Blue box (glass): Inch, Prestonfield and Southside
  • Food recycling: Magdalene, Bingham and Portobello 

Please leave these boxes/bins out for collection. We will continue to collect into Saturday if necessary.

Avoid bin delays

You can help avoid delays and missed bins by not:

  • parking in front of bins as it means we can't empty them
  • blocking access to streets for our bin trucks
  • putting your bin out where it cannot be easily seen.
