About Zero Waste Leith and the Business Charter
Changeworks is working with residents, community groups, schools and businesses in Leith to inspire and enable them to create a ‘clean and vibrant place where nothing is wasted’. Zero Waste Leith builds on activities already happening in the area to help the community create cleaner greener streets, share good practise and inspire more recycling, repair and reuse. Our Zero Waste Leith Business Charter, which is helping businesses go green, launched one year ago and already has more than 110 members.

There are bike racks located directly outside the drill hall.
The event will be held in the Rehearsal Studio which is situated on the ground floor and is accessible by wheelchair.
