Edinburgh’s new waste and recycling plan comes into force, for the Hutchison and Chesser area, in the first fortnight of June. New, smaller, landfill bins are being delivered in the next few weeks in preparation for the switch.
If you haven’t received a leaflet – or it disappeared into the bin by mistake! you can download a copy here – Recycling Phase_3_guide
Changes to bins:
Green bin (currently landfill): Tins, cans, paper, cardboard, envelopes, shredded paper, plastic bottles and bottle tops, pots, tubs and trays- put the items in loose, do not use plastic or black bags.
Blue box – Glass, batteries, small electricals and textiles
New Grey wheelie bin – All waste that can’t be recycled
Food waste bin – All food waste
Brown bin – Garden waste
Red box – No longer used
