Donate to Charity
Some of the charities and organisations listed in the External links section and listed below will collect your unwanted items free of charge as long as the items are still in working order. Soft furniture (sofas, mattresses etc.) needs to be in reasonable condition with a fire label and no stains or rips.
For more information about what these groups accept, please see the Pass It On leaflet in the Documents section. Taking your smaller unwanted items such as CDs and books to local charity shops will also help charities undertake their work.
Revive Leeds Reuse Shop, Seacroft, 0113 273 1791
At Seacroft Recycling Site there is a reuse shop which is run by Revive Leeds, a partnership between three local charities (Emmaus Leeds, St Jude's and SLATE). Profits raised by sales in the shop go to support the work of these charities in Leeds helping homeless, disadvantaged and disabled people. The shop accepts donations of furniture, clothing, bikes, books, DVDs and CDs, bric-a-brac and much more.
You can take unwanted items to Recycling Sites. Containers are available to place items for either donation to local charity, recycling or disposal. The sites are open 7 days a week, usually from 8am until 6pm. Please visit the Recyling sites page to check opening times before you set off. The sites only close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
Ask us to collect your bulky waste
We offer a bulky item collection service for residents of domestic properties. However, this service should only be used if the items to be removed are not suitable for re-use or recycling, or you are unable to dispose of them at your local recycling site. Collection can take up to 8 weeks and you need to book a collection using your own address and contact details, you can't arrange collections on behalf of someone else.
Important: We will only make 3 separate collections per property in a 12 month period. Please note that we cannot amend the details of your collection within 6 days of your scheduled collection.
Missed collections: Please leave your bulky waste out for collection for a further 48 hours if it is not collected on the booked date.
