Road gutters full on debris on Viewforth

Sent to Edinburgh City Council less than a minute later

The road sides gutters leading into the drains are full of debris all the way down Viewforth. I believe this is caused by a mix of the refuse bins overflowing on a weekly basis, the leaves from the roadside trees but most of all from the muck being produced by the Cala building works. This needs sorting before the drain are completed clogged and we start to get flooding issues.

  • You have stated on the Edinburgh website that this issue has been resolved - no true and I have attached a couple of photo as example of what the street looks like after you have reported the situation has been resolved. I think you need a man with a spade and bucket and a couple of hours and it would be done. Not sending a large machine that just cleans the centre of the road and missed this whole point of my original issue.
