Community clean-up set for Edinburgh districts

A MASSIVE clean-up operation is set to take place in south-east districts of Edinburgh, over the course of a week.

Beginning on Monday, the areas of Craigmillar, Niddrie and Greendykes are to be subject of community-based litter picking, plus the removal of illegally-dumped and bulky waste.

Says The City of Edinburgh Council, here: “With several skip loads expected to be collected in the following locations, other interested residents are also invited to turn up to lend a hand. Bags, pickers, and gloves will be provided.”

The schedule is, as follows:

* Monday 27 June 9.30am – 2pm at Niddrie House Square

* Tuesday 28 June 9.30am – 2pm at Harewood Road/Crescent and the Hays Community Business Centre

* Wednesday 29 June 9.30am – 2pm at Capella Gardens in Greendykes
