Missed bin collections?

East Lothian Council (ELC) have a website for reporting missed bin collections, covering recycling bins, green bins and brown bins.

ELC advise to check your collection day first, and once you are confident that the collection has been missed, report the missing collection directly using the buttons on their missed collections website. The missed collections page also provides other useful information about recycling and bin collections.

Alternatively residents can notify ELC Waste Services on 01875 824 305 or by emailing

East Saltoun – Development Consultation Event

Tues 27th September, 2.30-7.30pm – Fletcher Hall

Countryside development consultants, Urban Animation, working for Lennoxlove Estates, are holding an ‘open door’ day at the Fletcher Hall, East Saltoun from 2.30pm to 7.30pm on Tuesday 27th September. They would like to meet residents of East Saltoun to listen to their ideas for development of the village area.

East Lothian Council is currently formulating a new Local Development Plan (LDP) which will shape the direction of development in the region for the coming years. Part of this process was a Rural Housing Survey carried out earlier this year. Urban Animation’s research in East Saltoun will inform Lennoxlove Estates in their planning and submissions to East Lothian Council. We encourage the community to ensure that the voices of local residents are well understood as part of this process. Do take the opportunity to share your views.

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

From Yester, Bolton & Saltoun Parish

In light of the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen, the bells of the four churches in our parish will ring at 12 noon today.

If you would like a place for personal prayer and reflection, Humbie Church is open all day, and Yester, Bolton and Saltoun Churches will all be open between 2pm and 3pm today.

On Sunday, in place of the Communion service previously planned, we are going to have a service of reflection, still at 10am in Bolton Church.
