Community Recycling Centre

Bankhead Ave, Edinburgh EH11 4EA, UK – 0131 529 3030

Unlike some other customers, I had a great experience when I went to the Sighthill Waste Recycling Centre today. I turned up with 2 bags of waste for landfill, electrical stuff, boxes of cards, glass, metal and spent spotlight bulbs. I stopped to ask Kevin (Hearts supporter) and Paul (from Essex) where various items should be left and within seconds they followed me round to the boot of the car and started to heave the items out. They were funny, polite, helpful and wouldn't let me lift any of the heavy stuff. They are a credit to their employers and I hope they are complimented on their customer service. Thanks guys - you made my trip so easy! Carol

Mixed review for me. Positive: On one of my visits, there were three guys standing chatting. I was wary of interrupting them however when I asked one of the guys for assistance as I had a heavy tv unit in my car to dispose of, I was helped with no problem at all thankfully. Negatives: On one occasion I arrived with a full car and the tip was closed as it was "too windy" despite having been before and since on windy days and it was open. Fair enough if it was a gale but this is Scotland, it's windy most of the time and on this particular day the wind wasn't particularly bad in my opinion, it was worse on my most recent visit and it was open. Second negative: Unaware of the "no admittance after 7:20 pm" rule, I arrived at the site one evening at 7:17pm and the gates were already closed and the guys were already most of the way up the park. There was a lady in front of me too and she arrived five minutes before I did and it was closed already then.To have to the gates locked up and for the guys to have walked the length of the tip from the gate to almost the top of the site by the time I arrived at the gates, they must have closed between ten past and quarter past 7. The lady in front of me was adamant she was there just before quarter past and it was already closed. You should not be locking the gates until 20 past as your sign states we can come in up to 20 past. As the other poster here said, it's no wonder some people fly tip when things like this happen. Make sure you arrive before 7pm if you want to be sure you can get in (weekends excluded obviously as it closes earlier). Thanks

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.
