Guy Ward, 5, of Bonnyrigg Primary School and his mum Diane were happy to test drive a new food waste bin for us recently.
Weekly food waste collections is just one of the proposed changes to our recycling system.
We want to help residents recycle a wider range of goods such as plastic packaging and aerosols from your door.
However, we want to hear your views on the proposals, including weekly food collections, first.
A survey is available online at www.midlothian.gov.uk/recycling-survey.
