Middleton household waste site reopens

Leeds City Council has reopened the Holmewell Road recycling centre in Middleton for essential use.

To use the site you must book a slot to visit the centre. Your car registration will be checked and if you haven’t booked a slot you will be refused entry.

You should only bring waste to a site if it cannot be stored safely at home and you cannot dispose of it in any other way.

The site will only accept items that could:

  • cause you harm to store at your home
  • cause a fire risk
  • attract vermin

Commercial waste is being accepted at the Kirkstall site at the moment. You do not need to make a booking.

The Council has introduced the following rules to protect the public and our staff. You must:

  • use the car you booked with
  • be a Leeds resident
  • not bring a trailer or a van (cars only)
  • not bring anyone else with you (unless you have a blue badge)
  • keep your car windows closed
  • stay 2 metres apart from other people
  • not leave your car until parked in a bay

Council staff will not be able to help you dispose of your waste. The site is open 8am-8pm, seven days a week.
