No doubt you've accumulated a lot during your time in halls, and most of it, you probably don't want or need to drag home with you.
Here are some handy ways of getting rid of everything you've been hoarding...
Glass bottles and jars
From all those pasta and curry sauces! Stick them in bottle banks. There are plenty dotted around, have a look.
Give it, don't bin it!
Anything lying around that can be reused that you don't want to take home, you can donate. Charity shops will happily take anything in good condition, just bag it up and drop it off.
Emmaus and the British Heart Foundation will both collect bulky items, such as sofas, free of charge.
The STAR Bike Project collects unwanted bikes from the community and recycles them with and for asylum seekers and refugees.
Meanwood Valley Urban Farm will also accept unwanted bikes if you can take them there yourself; young people from the Re-Connect programme repair them and they are sent to good causes abroad or sold at affordable prices on the farm itself.
These sites accept gardening waste, large cardboard items, metals, large and small appliances, paint, general non-recyclable waste and there are bottle banks, clothes banks and one to recycle your drinks cartons.
NOTE: If you use a car to take your waste to these sites, you’ll need a Leeds permit. If you have a Leeds address you can apply for one here and it will be posted out to you.
