New Revive Leeds Re-use shop

The purpose built Revive Leeds Re-use shop (tel. 0113 216 3310) is also situated at this site, and has it's own car park. Pedestrian access is via the gate from Evanston Avenue.

The re-use shop is the second to be developed in Leeds and is run by Revive Leeds, a community interest group made up of two local charities: SLATE and SVP. Any re-usable items such as furniture, working electrical items, clothing, bikes, toys, books, cds, bric-a-brac and other household items can be donated direct to the new Revive Leeds re-use shop, where donations can be sold at low prices and enjoyed by someone else.

Business Waste

Businesses can recycle garden waste, cardboard, paper, timber, hardcore, rubble and soil, plasterboard and scrap metal. You can also dispose of your general and hazardous waste such as freezers, fridges, televisions, fluorescent tubes and small domestic electrical appliances. For information on charges please see our Trade Charges (PDF 170KB) document or ring 0113 378 3030.

The weighbridge is open for business waste from 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 12pm Saturday. Cash and cards are accepted.
