A concept testing for the communal bin review project has been implemented in Albert Street to test the project aims:
- Increase and improve recycling services to residents in multi-occupancy and flatted properties providing fully integrated waste and recycling service (each location aiming to have residual waste, recycling, food waste and glass)
- Review the existing bin locations to develop more formalised collection hubs to improve the perception of the service and enhance the streetscape
- Improve overall recycling performance, customer satisfaction and service reliability

McDonald Road Library, Nelson Hall
The walkway opened in the course of this week, following 18 months of lobbying CEC and pressing Miller Homes. Prior to that volunteers from the Water of Leith Trust had spent five days clearing the river and cutting back the overgrown vegetation. The path immediately behind Miller’s site is limited to circa 1m in width on a temporary basis while they continue with their protracted wall stabilisation works, but: the path is finally open. Gormley’s man who re-appeared nearly contemporaneously can be admired again mid-river, with some fine pieces of flotsam (or is it jetsam?) gathered behind him.
