Communal bin review

Timescales

Where there are currently parking restrictions, we need to secure Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs). These are a legal process we use to make changes to parking and road layouts ensuring stakeholders can become actively engaged in the process. 

Bin hubs will be introduced when possible while other road works are carried out. This means the timing depends on other projects.

We’re working in partnership with a range of other teams to make sure we can deliver all our different work programmes in the most efficient way possible and keep disruption to a minimum. These include:

The timescale will be confirmed through the committee report to Transport and Environment Committee in April 2021. We plan to start in Leith and Leith Walk wards soon after this.. Abbeyhill and Gorgie will follow later in the year.

When works are about to start on your street, we will send a postcard to let you know. We will also keep your community councils and councillors up to date. Once works are underway, we will send you information about the changes and how to best use the recycling service.
