Christmas bin collection Kirklees 2019 and recycling centre opening
It wouldn’t be Christmas without piles of wrapping paper, packaging and boxes piled up everywhere – so here’s everything you need to know about when you’ll be able to get rid of it!
Bin collections will continue as normal up to and including Christmas Eve, December 24, with a break over Christmas and New Year, restarting again on 6 January.
This means everyone will miss one bin collection, but we have confirmed that we will be taking up to 3 bags of excess household waste that is presented neatly beside the bin on the first collection of your waste bin in January (up until the 14 January).
To make sure people who have their bins emptied on a Wednesday or Thursday don’t miss a collection two weeks in a row, special arrangements have been made to collect the bins due to be emptied on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
This means that if your bin was due to be emptied on 25 December a special collection will take place on the 3 January. And, if your bin was due to be emptied on the 26 December a special collection will take place on the 2 January.
What about recycling centres?
Recycling centres are open as normal except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, when they are closed all day. Open weekdays 8-4pm and Sunday 9-4pm.
Our closest ones are:
Weaving Lane (off Thornhill Road)
Nab Lane (off Pheasant Drive)
Do I need a permit?
Register for a My Kirklees Account to manage your household waste and recycling permits and report any problems. You must register your vehicle to use these centres. You don’t have to have it with you as long as you use the same vehicle registered.
Where can I find out more?
Full details of all bin collections over Christmas and New Year, as well as 2020 dates, are at www.kirklees.gov.uk/bins where residents can also download a printable calendar.
