  • City of Edinburgh Council appear to have no mechanism in place to uplift unwanted brown waste bins that have been left on the pavements, following implementation of their garden waste collection charge. Hence bins are left out, people add other waste and it's left festering away with no-one it taking ownership of the problem.
