Garden waste collections hibernate for winter

Make sure you put the finishing touches to your winter garden tidy before garden waste collections go into hibernation in Leeds after Saturday 2 December 2016.

Brown bin

That is the last collection day for brown bins in the city until the service re-starts 12 weeks later on 27 February 2017. More information about garden waste collections and what is and isn’t acceptable to put in your brown bin can be found here: brown bin garden waste

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. The Holmewell Road site at Middleton (behind Asda) is open 8am-4pm every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Meanwhile, why not download the Leeds bin app to keep up to date with all bin collections? It allows you to check your bin day, save the dates to a smartphone or tablet and set reminders to put bins out the night before and morning of scheduled collections. It also has an interactive map showing local bring sites for recycling and the top four most used customer web links on bin collections.

It can be found by searching for Leeds Bins by imactivate from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
