I emailed LEEP a while ago about getting our recycling uplifted during the Festival. I think their reply got lost, so I phoned them to see what was happening. Here is the plan:
They can collect daily, but I thought that we could try Monday, Wednesday and Friday to start with.
They could collect in the window of 10am-noon.
They provide bags and stickers.
The cost is per bag/bundle. 1-2 is 3 pounds, 3-5 is 8 pounds and 6-15 is 15 pounds.
Cardboard, paper, plastic and cans need to be separated.
It needs to be brought up stairs, or we pay extra.
We could, for example, keep waste down stairs during the day as it accumulates. Then last thing at night, package up a suitable amount and leave it in the hall on our way out when locking up. In the morning, the first thing we do is put it outside for collection. Maybe that will be safe and a workable system.
The main bugger is that they don't do glass, which is what we will have most of, by weight at least. I've contacted a company called Viridor (?) who have Edinburgh sewn up. They will get back to me on Monday about adding us to their collection route.
