After the initial announcement and resident consultation back in August, Edinburgh Council are rolling out new ‘bin hubs’ across the Easter Road area.

Streets such as Easter Road, Albion Road and St Clair Road will now see communal bins (typically black bins on wheels and for use by tenement residents) unified into ‘hubs’ at kerbside.

You can view the Council’s map at to see where your bin will be located.

There may be disruption to resident parking while these new hubs are installed.

The bin hubs will feature metal railings to keep the bins in place and include a static ‘food recycling’ bin alongside the green-lidded recycling and black-lidded waste bin. You can see examples of them in Albert Street and across Hillside.
