Missed bin collections

Which missed bins are being collected today (2 March 2018)?

As weather conditions are slightly better in North Kirklees we are going to try and empty grey bins missed in Birkenshaw and Cleckheaton today.

We know that some roads are still going to be icy and where possible we will work with gritting teams to try and clear these roads.

For this to work, we need people to move parked cars
out of the way so we can get the big wagons down safely.

We can’t guarantee we will get to all the grey bins in these areas today,  so if yours still isn’t emptied please leave it out as we will try again as soon as possible.

When will you collect other missed bins?

Weather permitting, we will try and get to other areas in the North and South Kirklees as soon as we can,  we will keep you updated on the areas where we are working over the coming days.

What about Green bins?

With the forecast for more bad weather, it is unlikely that we will be able to empty green bins before the next collection, so please take these back in.

Thanks for your patience during these difficult conditions.





  • Hi Brian

    You can report missed bins online at http://www.kirklees.gov.uk/bins

    Kind regards


  • My green bins were not emptied yesterday Monday26th March they were presented at the gates from 6.00am as usual. I saw the refuse lorry but it failed to come down the back lane this tends to happen on an a regular basis. Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School try and encourage our children to recycle and would appreciate a regular fortnightly collection.

  • Thank you for all the wonderful work you do, but please could you tell me when my grey bin will be collected as it was missed today due to snowy conditions (08 March 2018) – The Pines, Earlsheaton

  • Still waiting for bin collection in Almondbury.Two weeks and counting. The grey bin is overflowing and the snow had cleared here by 11:00. Beginning to doubt if we’ll see anybody before next week. Patience is wearing a bit thin!
