Delays to rubbish and recycling collections

Wednesday 2 April 2020 at 5 pm

From 23 March, all three recycling centres are closed. If you have large items please keep them at home until our recycling centres reopen and only use communal and wheelie bins for your day to day waste and recycling.

From 23 March, all kerbside blue box (glass) collections are suspended due to staff shortages. Find out what  to do with your glass.

There are currently delays to green recyclable bins in

  • Burdiehouse 
  • Southside
  • Hyvot Bank 
  • Gilmerton 
  • Ravenscroft

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.
