Communal bin hubs “rolling out” around Easter Road, Leith Walk and Pilrig next week

After the consultation, Edinburgh Council will be installing the ‘bin hubs’ across the area from 10th January until early March.

Edinburgh Council is creating designated bin hubs to keep communal bins neatly and safely in one location on your street, or a nearby street.

Each hub will have a range of recycling bins. There’ll be bins for mixed recycling, food recycling and glass. There’ll also be bins for any waste that can’t be recycled.

Areas included as part of the road works programme are Easter Road (previously in embargo), Leith Walk and Pilrig. During this time, in order to install the corralling and new bins, there will be minor disruption to resident parking where the new hubs are due to be installed. Engagement with the residents was carried out during November and comments were considered on the final designs which are now publicly available on Edinburgh Council’s website.

Residents may receive a leaflet with relevant information about the updated service.
