Communal bin hubs coming in November

The below was an email sent from the City of Edinburgh Council regarding the new bin hubs (a new approach to shared waste and recycling bins) and controlled parking.

Plans for Bonnington have been published on the Council website (https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/bins-recycling/communal-bin-review/4?documentId=12997&categoryId=20001), with Leith Walk and Pirlig coming at a later date.

What’s happening?

For on street locations, we are working in conjunction with parking to minimise the disruption to each street, by timing our changes alongside traffic regulation changes.

Leith, North Leith, Leith Walk, Pilrig and Abbeyhill areas will be subject to a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) process which is taking place in summer 2021 as part of the Strategic Review of Parking. Residents will be able to provide feedback on the plans, including the on-street bin locations, through the TRO process, when available.

For other areas in Phase 1, which will not be subject to a TRO, which includes Bonnington, West Leith, Easter Road, Willowbrae North, Craigentinny and north of Restalrig, we will advise residents that the bin hubs are coming in advance, to allow them to feedback on the locations.

To do this, we will display posters on lampposts in the affected areas and advise local community councils and other stakeholders. Residents will be able to view the plans online from week commencing 26 July and provide feedback by 22 August 2021. The bin hub webpages will explain how to do this.

The feedback received from residents from both the TRO process and the engagement process by September will allow enough time to confirm the final locations and make any changes if required and start the roll out of the new bin hubs starting in November 2021.

Feedback will be considered where this can be delivered in conjunction with the fulfilment of the parameters and criteria as set out in the committee report.

When works are about to start on a street, we will send a postcard to let residents know.

We will then write to all residents to explain what is happening and to encourage them to recycle. A guide with information about how to reduce, reuse and recycle will be included in the letter.
