See bin collection dates and save reminders to your device.
Leeds bins is an app that reminds you when your bins will be collected in Leeds. It is a popular product that is simple to use and free. We are now offering this service to councils in other areas.
The app relies on waste collection data that is open and regularly updated. By using open data we can make a product at a low cost without needing local authorities to maintain it themselves.
Using an open approach also allows us to re-use the same solution at a minimal cost in other areas. We have already tested and ironed out problems in Leeds. If your data is provided by Bartec we can deliver a solution in a month.
All the current components are provided to new councils and we can work with you to add new features.Enquire now

Benefits for local authorities
- Prevent missed collections by keeping people better informed.
- Easily make residents aware of changes to their regular schedule.
- More cost-effective than existing mail outs.

A simple and effective app which is practical but not intrusive. Automated reminders to update calendar with forthcoming bin days are helpful. Would be good to see it rolled out to more areas.
Really useful, accurate and simple to use! I have recommended to friends.
