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.

Alongside the Parking Review, Edinburgh Council, who are currently rolling out ‘bin hubs’ across Bonnington and Easter Road, are proposing bin hubs across Leith Walk, Pilrig and Abbeyhill, which includes streets such as Lorne Street, Pilrig Street and Iona Street.

Bin hubs will typically consist of black bins and green recycling bins on wheels as well as food waste bins unified into ‘hubs’ at kerbside in tenemented areas.

The proposals can view viewed at Edinburgh.gov.uk where Edinburgh Council are also gathering feedback.

The bin hubs will also be rolled out in North Leith, Gorgie and Shandon at the same time.

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 Edinburgh.gov.uk 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.
