Refuse Collection

For quick reference, there are three types of wheelie bin at Spinning Acres – black for general household waste, brown for garden waste, and green for recycling such as paper, cardboard, metal cans, aerosols, and plastics. Click here to check when your refuse collection day is.

Cloth Halls and Burton Lea have communal bin stores. The bin stores have recycle bins for paper, cardboard, metal cans, aerosols, and plastics and general waste bins for household waste.

Leeds Council has developed an invaluable app for those with poor memories; simply download the Leeds Bins app to check your bin days on the move and get reminders sent to your phone.


There are eight recycling sites in the local area, all of which tend to be quieter before 11am and after 3pm.

If you wish to visit one of these sites, you will need to remember your Leeds Resident Permit to gain entry. You can locate your nearest recycling site here.


If you wish to report a broken streetlight, you can call 0800 032 5349.

Before reporting, please note that streetlights along certain roads will be switched off between midnight and 4.30am as part of the selective part-night street lighting scheme.
