Over 10,000 bookings have now been made for sites across Leeds, Leeds Recycles said in a social media point.

It has now been announced that Wetherby (Thorp Arch) and Yeadon (Milner’s Road) sites will reopen on Monday May 18.

Entry is strictly by booking only - with slots to be made available either later on Thursday or early Friday.

Leeds Recycles are also changing the site rules so cars can now be admitted if they have more than one person in, including children.

However, the rule remains that only one person can unload the car to maintain strict social distancing rules.

Staff can not help unload or carry items and residents can make a maximum of two trips per week.

Leeds Recycles thanked the public for their 'continued patience and support'.
