Leithers Don’t Litter and Changeworks joined forces this afternoon to launch a new campaign against flytipping as part of Zero Waste Leith.

Organisers issued a booklet explaining legal ways to store and dispose of waste, and highlighting the Council email address on which to report flytippers and arrange for their mess to be uplifted free:

The booklet also lists legal ways to get rid of bulky stuff:

  • Phone the Re-use Line on 0800 0665 820 or Edinburgh Remakery on 0131 629 9358
  • Contact charity shops
  • Online sites where people seek second-goods: e.g., and
  • Seafield Waste Recycling Centre
  • Council bulky uplift service (costing £5 per item)
  • Man with a van-type firms (but check they’re SEPA-registered and ask how they’ll dispose of your waste item)
  • Retailers who take away old white goods when you buy a new one.
