      There are currently no delays to kerbside collections in the Edinburgh area.

If you see our crews in the street please keep a safe distance from them of at least two metres. This is to protect them and you.  Please visit the Scottish Government’s website for advice on social distancing.

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.
