Fortnightly bin collections will be introduced in East Lothian as part of moves to meet statutory targets on waste and recycling.
East Lothian Council has decided to implement a series of measures that will help it comply with the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 and European legislation.
They include: a new weekly food waste collection to all households; expansion of the fortnightly garden waste collection to cover all households; retention of the fortnightly multi-material recycling box collection; and a new dedicated trade waste service.
