Brown Bin Collections re-start this week

Brown garden bin collections will resume this week following the winter suspension of the service.

Brown binUsing the brown bins is an effective way of keeping garden waste out of landfill; helping to save money and cut carbon emissions.

The bins can be filled with grass and hedge cuttings, fruit which has fallen to the ground, leaves, dead house or bedding plants, weeds, twigs and small branches.

To help keep the bin collections running smoothly, residents are asked to put bins out by 7am on collection day and taken back in as soon as is practical once emptied. Collection dates, including any changes, can be checked on the council’s website.

Councillor Mark Dobson, executive member for the environment said:

“Following the lull in demand, I hope residents will get back into full swing with their garden waste recycling.

“We’re continually striving to make improvements to services and we’re confident that changes will further improve recycling services in Leeds.

“Not only is burying waste in the ground detrimental to the environment, but it is costly. I sincerely hope people will continue to recycle to make Leeds cleaner and greener.”

The Holmewood Road household waste sorting site in Middleton is open throughout the year to recycle a range of items including garden waste.
