NEWS: Edinburgh increases recycling facilities

Many people (myself included) live in tenemant buildings in Edinburgh, which can make providing recycling facilites hard. Where I used to live we had a paper bank outside and glass and packaging facilities at the back of a nearby supermarket. Now I live in a conservation area and we aren't allowed great big ugly recycling bins. We manage with a paper bank 5 minutes walk away and the rest of the time my boyfriend carts rubbish over to a not-so nearby supermarket to use their facilities.

Good news though, Edinburgh City Council are considering giving us better facilities and are definitely giving other areas more recycling banks! Other parts of the city (New Town, for example) have the blue/red box collection schemes that I gaze upon enviously as I walk to work... The more recycling facilities the better, I say.
