Recycling sites

There are eight recycling sites throughout the city where you can reuse, recycle or throw away your household waste. Click on the list of sites in Related Pages to find out more details.

Opening times

Summer (BST) 31 March 2014 to 26 October 2014 8am to 6pm.

Winter (GMT) 27 October 2014 to 29 March 2015 8am to 4pm.

Open seven days a week apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day when the sites are closed.​

Are you using a vehicle other than a car?

If you have a commercial type vehicle (e.g. a van or a four wheel drive pick-up) or use a trailer to take your household waste to the recycling sites, you will need a permit. Click on the Leeds Permit Scheme link in Related Pages for more information.

Bottle banks and bring sites

These are smaller recycling sites which you'll find in supermarkets or pub car parks. Depending which site you choose to use you can recycle a variety of things including paper, glass, textiles, food/drink cans and plastic bottles. 

Please telephone or text 07891 277226 to report an untidy site or overflowing bank.​



Why do I have to take my rubbish to the Recycling Site?

We provide recycling sites so that you can recycle and get rid of your surplus waste that might not fit in your wheelie bin. To save time it's worth sorting your recyclables and waste before visiting the site.

What if I don't know where to put things?

The site staff will be able to advise you about what can be recycled and where to put things. If you have any queries just ask them and they will be happy to help.

I would like to volunteer to help at the Revive Leeds shop, how do I do this?

Please contact Revive Leeds direct at the shop on 0113 2731791.​
