What is the new bin service?
To increase recycling and reduce rubbish going to landfill, we are introducing alternate weekly collections for black and green bins to 80% of Leeds households by the end of 2014.
This new service is already proving successful as residents on the new service are now putting less rubbish into their black bins and using their green bins more.
How the new service will work?
One week we will empty your black bin or bag; on the same day the following week, your green bin or bag will be emptied. Further information can be found in the Documents section.
Who is getting the new service next?
Our new bin service is already serving 56,000 households in the south and south-east of Leeds.
We have also introduced it to around 113,000 more households in the following wards: Adel and Wharfedale, Alwoodley, Armley, Ardsley and Robin Hood, Bramley and Stanningley, Calverley and Farsley, Guiseley and Rawdon, Harewood, Horsforth, Kirkstall, Middleton Park, Otley and Yeadon, Pudsey, Weetwood and Wetherby.
We have sent a detailed information pack to everyone has gone onto the new service. This will tell you your collection day, which may change, and your service start date.
If you have not received this pack, your bin service will remain the same.
