Summary of 2021-22
Although many residents remain unaware of the fact, due to resource pressures, the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) is no longer able to mount regular, mechanised leaf-clearing operations across the city. To remedy this, we undertook to coordinate teams of volunteers during the autumn months 0f 2021 on leaf clearing sessions.
A total of 1,259 bags of leaves were filled by residents and collected by CEC for composting. In addition, the many additional bags of grit and contaminated material were collected by CEC to be recycled for use in roads.
The Merchiston Community Council Leaf Clearing project is coordinated by Joan Houston and Helen Zealley.
