Edinburgh Napier journalism student Chloe Goodall recently interviewed Gorgie Dalry Community Councillor Mathew Reilly for a video report on the persistent problems residents are having with fly tipping in the area.
“At our Community Council meetings when we have discussions about this it seems that everyone is annoyed with it and fed up, they say that our area looks really bad because of it. And then whenever you look online, whether one the Gorgie Dalry Neighbours group or the Keep Gorgie Clean page, all the comments are all negative, like “this makes our place look untidy” or “this is a health hazard”. Everyone who comments seems to say that it is negatively affecting our area.”
Gorgie Dalry Community Council continue to report fly tipping, and are pressing the City of Edinburgh Council to do more to prevent waste from being dumped in our area in the first place. We encourage residents who are concerned about this issue to attend our next public meeting at 7pm on Monday 7th December, or get in touch with us: email
