As part of our commitment to increasing recycling and reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill, we are extending our new bin service to more homes in Leeds. If you are affected by the change in service you will have received an information pack through the post which provides all the details of your new bin collection dates.
From 28 July 2014 all suitable properties in the following areas will receive a new bin service:
- Crossgates and Whinmoor,
- Temple Newsam
Plus some suitable properties in
- Burmantofts and Richmond Hill,
- Harehills and
This is the third phase of our successful new bin service, meaning 60% of Leeds homes will be receiving the service. It’s expected that the remaining suitable properties across the city will receive the new bin service in early 2015.
If your home is in the new service area, get ready for the new bin service by making sure you have:
- a black bin (or black bags, if you use them)
- a green bin (or green bags, if you use them)
If you need a bin, visit the new or replacement bins related page and leave us a message.
In most cases, each household should have one green bin and one black bin. Any surplus bins will be removed as part of service improvements.
