Phase three of the Council’s new recycling service will begin next month, March 2015, spreading the service to Westburn.
All residents should have received information packs about the new service and how the change over will affect them. You can find out more details about the new service on the Council’s website:
Green bin – Tins, cans, paper, cardboard, envelopes, 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
Red box – No longer used
Food waste bin – All food waste
Brown bin – Garden waste
If you use the new recycling service, your bin and box will be emptied at different times on the same day. Please ensure that bins and boxes are out by 6am, collections run until 10pm. If they are not emptied on your collection day, please report it using the contact details on this page.
The majority of Wester Hailes received the new service in November 2014 as part of phase two of the roll-out.
