Suspended CEC waste and recycling services

(copied from a post on Edinburgh Council's website. That post also links to information on (1) Bin collections and recycling centres; (2) What to do with your waste if you have Coronavirus symptoms; (3) Recycling and waste collections; (4) Household waste recycling centres; (5) Litter bins, dog waste and street cleansing; (6) How you can help.)

Collections of bulky waste items

Service suspended from 24 March - If you have large items please keep them at home and only use communal and wheelie bins for your day to day waste and recycling.

Any uplifts booked in for this week will be collected as scheduled, and we'll contact you if you have any booked in for next week to arrange a refund.

Household Waste Recycling Centres

Recycling centres are closed from 24 March until further notice. This is to ensure we are following government guidance on restricting non-essential travel and contact. 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

Kerbside glass collections (blue box)

Service suspended from 23 March to allow our crews to focus on other collections.

There are no public health risks associated with storing clean glass containers. Please rinse bottles and jars and store these at home. Don’t use on street or local recycling points to dispose of your glass. We don’t have the staff resources to empty these or collect fly-tipped material.

Bin delivery and repair

Bin deliveries are suspended as from 24 March.  Uplifts of any unwanted waste containers are also suspended.

Missed bins

We might experience disruption to some of our bin collections today due to staff shortages. Remember to check our delays information to see if your area may have been affected.

Please ensure all waste/recycling containers are presented for collection for 6am as there may be changes to your collection time. Please look out for your neighbours and check they are able to put their bins out.

Edinburgh flat residents – what do you think of on street recycling bins?

(adapted from an email from Changeworks)

If you live in a flat in Edinburgh, Changeworks would like to ask your views of the shared waste and recycling bins on your street. The results of this survey will help the City of Edinburgh Council improve the service. The short online survey, which only takes 5-10 minutes to complete, is available to Edinburgh residents until 23 October 2017.

By taking part in the survey, you can enter a prize draw* with the chance to win several prizes including vouchers for Pizza Express and Cineworld, and family passes to the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh. You will also be offered the chance to attend a paid focus group, scheduled for November 2017, where feedback and ideas will be explored in more depth.

You can also follow @ChangeworksUK on Facebook and Twitter to share and retweet their posts about the recycling survey.
