Delays to rubbish and recycling collections

Thursday 2 December 2021 at 4.30pm

There are currently delays to the following kerbside collections in the Edinburgh area:

  • black/grey non-recyclable bins - City Centre & Leith

  • food recyclable bins - Liberton and Gilmerton

  • glass recyclable bins - Drum Brae, Gyle, Sighthill and Gorgie

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.

Recycling centres are now open on an appointment only basis. Book a visit to a household waste recycling centre.
