Extinction Rebellion Edinburgh planning climate crisis march in the Capital - your views online
Extinction Rebellion Edinburgh are ‘planning a march’ in the Capital ahead of Cop26 in Glasgow
All be marching and talking on their plastic mobile phones, then going home on their diesel buses to watch themselves on a big plastic telly while micowaving a plastic dinner for quickness then go to bed all satisfied, watching their plastic tablet.

Why no march in Glasgow where it's being held?
Cannae even get the right city. Bunch of numpties.
Why do these so-called educated people think disrupting the lives of ordinary working people will help save this planet? Why not disrupt the homes or lives of the greedy decision makers?
Meanwhile in the real world... China power cuts; Coal miners ordered to boost output, say reports. As if anything we do in Scotland makes the slightest difference to climate change!
How are these people travelling the country so much when they apparently care for the environment so much?
Rent-a-mob planning a few fun days out!

Should be doing this in Glasgow, but hopefully it willm be peaceful.
Crackpots – hope it rains.
At least if they're marching they won't be sitting on the North Bridge.
As long as it’s a peaceful march with none of their shenanigans, fair enough. They’re as entitled as anyone else.
I'd rather be inconvenienced by them than an Orange march.
You can pretty much guarantee that they will glue themselves to something or find some way of blocking the roads other than marching.
When are we going to finally heed Ronnie Corbett and Lulu and keep Britain tidy? asks Susan Morrison
We're being told constantly to recycle, it'd help if the recycling bins were emptied more than once a week.
Parents need to teach by example, not throwing litter out their cars; schools need to encourage kids to keep Scotland beautiful.
Why are you blaming the residents? The city is full of visitors, perhaps the police should be enforcing the law with them.
People might use the litter bins in Edinburgh if they thought they might be emptied.
I do a litter pick in the vicinity of the house about once a week. Can always tell when the schools are back off holidays as the roads leading to Towerbank school are festooned with wrappers. On a nice day I extend my walk down along Porty beach, as the small mountain of rubbish from takeaway franchises has the bins full to overflowing by noon.

How much of it comes from overflowing or unemptied bins blown around the city?
A different style of food waste bin will be introduced as part of Edinburgh’s new bin hubs scheme
And they will all be misused and overrun with rats in no time, just like the recycling area at Tesco Corstorphine.
The litter and weed situation started during the Covid lockdown. I wondered if it was because of furlough. Surely outdoor workers should have been able to return to their jobs. CEC taking advantage of the scheme perhaps. Couldn’t understand that homeowners didn’t remove weeds, outside of homes, themselves.
£35 a year is going to be the cost to every household.
People are still tossing food out while we have food banks in need.
The SNP, year after year, have cut central grants to Scottish councils. The time has come that the councils cut services, welfare and benefits to match the income they currently receive. If they've not got it, they can't spend it. Meanwhile, we read council tax 'could rise by up to five per cent every year over the next three years.
