Garden waste collection to pause for the winter months


It’s getting to that time of year again to do the final touches to your garden as the garden waste collection service in Leeds goes into hibernation in early December.

The last day for brown bin collections will be Saturday 2 December and the service will resume again on Monday 26 February.

If you have any garden waste you do need to dispose of while collections are stood down you can bring it to one of the council’s recycling sites. Information about locations and opening times are available here: Leeds recycling sites

For bin day reminders straight to your phone you can download the Leeds Bins app. Search for Leeds Bins by imactivate from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

The Leeds Bins app allows you to easily obtain bin collection information in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Input your address to see your Black, Green and Brown bin collection dates for the next four weeks. With the app you can save these dates to your device’s calendar and specify when you are reminded of upcoming collections. Also, see where your nearest recycling points are on an interactive map. Please note that bin collection date searches may not work for flats with shared bins.
