Waste and recycling collections
East Lothian Council has a duty to provide certain waste and recycling services. This includes separate collections for some materials like food, plastics and cardboard.
Every household in East Lothian is provided with:
- A weekly collection of food waste
- A fortnightly collection of cardboard, paper, plastics, cans and glass
- A fortnightly collection of garden waste
- A fortnightly collection of non recyclable waste
In addition to the regular collection services, households can also book a collection for bulky household waste items.
For waste collections from properties other than households, please visit our pages on trade waste.
