The City of Edinburgh Council – Waste and Cleansing Services will be providing nearly 800 properties in your area with a new food waste recycling container.
As part of a trial, residents in Brunswick Street, Windsor Street, part of Montgomery Street (nos. 3-75 and nos. 6 to 68), Leopold Place and Windsor Street Lane will receive an information pack in the next couple of weeks followed by the installation of the new food waste bins in Brunswick Street, Windsor Street, Montgomery Street and Hillside Crescent (see location map attached).
The information pack includes an introduction letter and a food waste leaflet explaining how to recycle all cooked and uncooked food waste – including leftover, egg shells, tea bags and bones. The residents will also receive a roll of liners. We hope the different design of the food waste bin will encourage more residents to participate in the food waste collection service.
For further information or to order an indoor kitchen food caddy residents can visit www.edinburgh.gov.uk/recycle, or phone 0131 608 1100.
