Have your say

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.
