A small number of homes in Ardsley and Robin Hood will be included in the next phase of Leeds City Council bin collection changes.
Thousands of homes across Morley and Ardsley were included in the first phase of the changes, which saw black and green bins being collected alternately, earlier this year.
The experiences and lessons learned from introducing the service to homes in the first phase have helped shape the plans for this next phase, according to the council,
Coun Mark Dobson, executive member for the environment said: “Bin collections are one of the most visible council services and changes on this scale means we need to take a considered, staged approach.
“The evidence from phase one clearly shows that we can up the amount of recycling we collect and send less to landfill by increasing the frequency of green bin collections.
“Our experience of introducing this service to 56,000 homes back in April and the lessons we’ve learned means that we can help everyone through the changes.
“With residents continued support we can maintain and exceed our recycling ambitions.”
Residents will receive an information pack and the Waste Doctors – the council’s specialist recycling advisers – will be hosting roadshows and attending events to offer residents advice on how to get the most out of their green recycling bin.
By 2015 the service will be rolled out to 80 per cent of homes in Leeds when the council expects to save £2.5 million a year through sending less waste to landfill.
