Garden waste collection

(adapted from a page on Edinburgh Council’s website)

Edinburgh Council empties brown bins once every two weeks, except over the festive period when there will be no collections between 16 December 2019 and 14 January 2020.

Garden waste is a £25 fee bin collection service that runs from October to October.

Current garden waste permits run from 7 October 2019 to 4 October 2020. Registration for the garden waste service is closed. You can sign up from 10am on 20 January 2020 until 3 February at 2pm. This will be the final chance to sign up for this year.

If you receive Council Tax Reduction (formerly called Council Tax Benefit) you do not need to pay the £25 fee but you still need to register to receive the service. Other council tax reductions, such as Single Occupancy discount or Garden Aid, do not qualify for free garden waste collections.
