Are you using a vehicle other than a car?

If you have a commercial type vehicle, such as 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 separate commercial permit. See our Recycling site permits page for more information and to find out how to apply.

Revive Leeds Re-use shop

Revive Leeds Re-use shop is also situated at this site. The re-use shop is the first of its kind in Leeds and is run by a community interest group made up of two local charities: SLATE and SVP. It sells low-cost, good quality furniture, electrical goods, clothes, books, bric-a-brac and other household items.

You can donate unwanted items to the shop and they will be sold back to the public at low prices.
