Christmas and New Year bin collection Leeds 2020: dates black, brown and blue bins are collected over festive period
There will be no bin collections on Christmas and New Year’s Day
With all the eating, drinking and gift-giving over the festive period, you might be wondering how to dispose of all the extra waste.
The Christmas holidays are a time when many services tend to wind down, and bin collection is no different.
Here are the changes to bin collection dates and service provision over the festive period.
Leeds bin collection dates
For some people, bins won’t be collected until two days later than usual, whereas others will have their bin collected the day before their scheduled collection.
Your recycle bin (green) and black waste bin will be emptied on alternating weeks, therefore whichever bin is affected by the dates should be put out on the revised date.
If you are a garden waste bin subscriber, this service only runs from March until November, therefore brown bin collection is not available throughout the festive period.
