Fraud Alert – Hoax HMRC Phone Calls

West Yorkshire Police have contacted the Parish Council to alert them to an ongoing fraud scam whereby people are receiving calls from callers claiming to be from HMRC. The caller engages conversation and tells the victim they owe taxes from years ago or have overdue tax bills, and are threatening them with prosecution and arrest if not paid immediately.

HMRC do not contact people by telephone or email in these circumstances. If you receive a call like this, hang up. If in doubt, contact HMRC on 0300 200 3300.

Recycle Me – Paper Recycling Campaign

Leeds City Council is currently running a four week campaign called “Recycle Me” to encourage paper recycling from around the home.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the different types of cardboard and paper that can go in green bins and why it’s important to recycle as much as we can to reduce carbon and save money by diverting it away from disposal.

Each year Leeds households throw away over 1,700 trees worth of perfectly recyclable paper. Laid end to end they would stretch from Leeds to York.

Please help LCC to reduce some of the 306,000 tonnes of waste collected from the city each year by putting the following items in your green bin:

  • Paper, cardboard and envelopes
  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Leaflets, flyers and junk mail
  • Cardboard food packaging
  • Wrapping paper
  • Pizza boxes
