Old Dalkeith Road Community Recycling Centre

Old Dalkeith Road, Craigmillar, Edinburgh EH16 4TB, UK – 0131 529 3030

Easy place to take rubbish, well organised and helpful staff on hand. Love how they've decorated their hut and made a sitting area. Look out for the spooky skulls!!

Congratulations to the staff who have taken the time to make a little garden area around their cabin. I dropped some rubbish off yesterday and it brightened a dull edinburgh evening to see the colourful display. Well done. Staff were pleasant and helpful as usual.

Seafield Community Recycling Centre

Fillyside Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6RD, UK – 0131 529 3030

What can I say? This is a good place to recycle those unwanted bulky and difficult to recycle items. It is a bit out of the way, near Portobello Beach. We dumped sound equipment, old mobile phones, crockery, and lamps. They have domestic recycling spots for old mattresses, televisions, PC equipment, soil, iron, plastics, etc.. It doesn't cost you anything to recycle (we did it by using a taxi, so that was our cost) and you will be glad you did get rid of some stuff like we did. NOTE: if you are recycling difficult to process stuff, or commercial waste, contact the people on the site and they will advise if there is a cost involved Use it, as it is better than being a dumb dumper.

Easy to drop off quickly, helpful staff but dont bring a van or wear tradies overalls as they have strict rules regards trade waste

Junkbuster Recycling

8C Bath St, Edinburgh EH15 1EY, UK – 07541 131418

Would highly recommend these guys. I called up Alfie last minute looking for help with clearing out my rental flat and attic prior to selling, he was very responsive and was able to fit me in quickly. The three guys came on time this morning and they quickly and efficiently cleared everything (Even though there was more than I expected - sorry!!). Nice guys as well. Top job!

Absolutely amazing guys. They came in and took away everything we have that was broken to be 100% recycled for an amazing price. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone who needs their goods recycle efficiently! We shall definitely be using them for our future needs

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.
