What is the new bin service?
We are committed to increasing recycling and reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill. In line with this, we have introduced alternate weekly collections to around 170,000 households in 2013. One week we empty black bins and bags, and on the same day following week, we empty the green bin or bag.
This new service is already proving successful. Residents are now sorting their recyclable items better, using their green bins more, and reducing the amount of rubbish they put into their black bins.
Further information can be found in the Documents section.
Who is getting the new service next?
The aim is for 80% of Leeds homes to be in receipt of the new bin service. We are currently working on plans to implement the service for the remainder of suitable properties in the city.
As plans progress, we will send out information to those householders who are to receive the new service, or are affected by the changes.
