To date, the City of Edinburgh Council have not announced any changes to grey, non-recyclable waste and green/blue recyclable waste over the Christmas and New Year period.

The Council, however, have said they will not collect garden waste from December 19 to January 15, 2023.

The council said: “After 15 January 2023, we’ll collect your brown bin on your next normal collection day.

“On your first January collection you can put Christmas trees in your garden waste bin. If it’s over 7ft, please chop it in half and remove the branches.”
