Edinburgh Council empties brown bins once every two weeks, except over the festive period when there will be no collections between 16 December 2019 and 14 January 2020.
Garden waste is a £25 fee bin collection service that runs from October to October.
Current garden waste permits run from 7 October 2019 to 4 October 2020. Registration for the garden waste service is closed. You can sign up from 10am on 20 January 2020 until 3 February at 2pm. This will be the final chance to sign up for this year.
If you receive Council Tax Reduction (formerly called Council Tax Benefit) you do not need to pay the £25 fee but you still need to register to receive the service. Other council tax reductions, such as Single Occupancy discount or Garden Aid, do not qualify for free garden waste collections.

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
