You may be aware that the Council are to introduce Alternate Week Collections of green and black bins (each bin to be emptied once per fortnight). I attended an update meeting on the above and have been advised this new service will start in our area week commencing 18th November 2013. In the next week or so you should receive a letter from the Council advising you of the revised collection dates and also a booklet giving further information and answers to “frequently asked questions”. There will also be a calendar sticker enclosed. This will also show the relevant Christmas collection days for both this year and 2014.

If you have any problems with this service or have any questions or queries can I suggest you telephone 0113 222 4406 and by all means contact me with any concerns you may have or if you do not receive a satisfactory response if you do use the number.

The full list of streets that is included and the revised list of days for each area have not yet been published.

Please could I draw your attention to the road show event below. The Council are also looking to schedule a further event at Adel Memorial Hall later in November, when I have confirmation of the arrangements I will provide you with a further update.

 ■ Tuesday 5 November 2013, 2:00pm – 4:00pm Cookridge Methodist Church Hall, Otley Old Road, Cookridge.

 A full range of road shown event can be seen on the Leeds City Council website at
