Catching up on bin collections in Kirklees after the snow

bin collections affected by the weather

We’re changing some bin collections this week to catch up after last week’s disruptions. We are prioritising grey bin collections over green until we have caught up. The bin collections search on our website and our bin reminders will not reflect these last minute changes so please go by the information below when putting your bin out.

1] If your normal bin collection is on Monday or Tuesday, there will be no change to your collections.

2] If you had a missed green bin collection last week, this will remain as a missed collection and we will collect it next time it is due – check our website for the date.

3] If you live in Batley, Birstall, Cleckheaton, Liversedge or Heckmondwike, our catch up teams are out trying to collect the missed grey bins from last week throughout this week and into next week so please leave your bin out. This area wasn’t as badly affected as others and so we began catching up last Friday.

4] If your bin is due to be collected on Wednesday 7 March 2018 and Thursday 8 March 2018 and you live in one of the areas listed below, there will be grey bin collections only.  If we missed your grey bin last week, please put it out, but if we collected it last week we will not be able to call again as we need to prioritise the catching up in other areas. Please do not put your green bin out – we will collect it next time it is due – check our website for the date.

If we missed your grey bin last week, please put it out, but if we collected it last week we will not be able to call again as we need to prioritise the catching up in other areas. Please do not put your green bin out – we will collect it next time it is due – check our website for the date.

  • Why don’t they use same common sense over Christmas and prioritise grey over green bins

  • When will Almondbury be due a grey collection?? Not on the above lists

  • No grey bin collection on Thursday 8th as promised and no sign of them today (9th). Could find no info or updates on your website. Disappointing. When are you going to collect, please.

  • Here in Old Bank Rd, Dewsbury we have had no collection of green bins last week and no collection of black bins this week. The result is bins and rubbish collecting in the street. What is happening to Kirklees refuse collection service?

  • Well here we are again! Friday has dawned nice and bright here in HD3 but still the grey bins remain unemptied and no reply to my earlier post either! Little point in communicating what you say are going to do KMC if you do not actually do it is there? A case of all show and no substance?

    my bin still hasnt been emptied, my catch up date to empty was yesterday, i would like to know when it will be emptied, meltham, helme lane

  • Our bin was supposed to be emptied 8th March as per your update but we had snow again in Marsden so it was not emptied. Can you advise when it will be collected

  • My neighbour as just told me theyve finally collected grey bin but theyve collected green as well.both into same wagon.whats the point of recycling ?

  • we missed the green bins last week because of the snow and missed our grey bin yesterday because of more snow yet I saw the lorry out later that same morning. If the snow was predicted to disappear quickly why didn’t the staff work a later shift after the roads had been cleared? I know the budget is going to mean overtime is to be avoided but with fortnightly collections a missed collection means waiting a whole month. This is only going to encourage fly tipping.

  • If I paid for a service from any other company, that wasn’t carried out, I would expect a refund, not just an apology.
    Why do you think it’s ok to charge for services you don’t actually carry out?

  • St Helens gate Almondury. Grey bin should have been collected 01/03. When will it be collected?

  • Hi I live in Liversedge and we have not had a collection for two weeks both grey and green bin

  • Many thanks I think this a very helpful sight. Especially if you live alone and do not need to put the bin out every time. Many thanks and well done with a difficult time of the year.

  • Our grey bin was due to be emptied yesterday. The wagon came in the afternoon due to snow in morning but mine and several bins were missed. York Road Earlsheaton Dewsbury. Will they be emptied today?

  • Well done Kirklees unfortunately today my bin green or grey has again NOT been collected when will it be collected as I am now rubbish bound both recyclable and household waste as I have many times in the past reported a non collection of bins why does this not surprise me that my bin has again not been collected. I wounder if I withheld my council tax every it was due to be collected how long it would be before I was in court for this

  • What are we paying our council tax for… I have to wait a month now to get my GREEN bin emptied.
    What’s the point of recycling might as well put in any old bin at least they’ll empty your GRAY bin.
    This is not the 1st time this has happened…see my council tax is going up tho.

    It is now 8.00 p.m. on 8th March 2018 and our bins at Avison Road Cowlersley HD4 5TL have STILL NOT been collected despite your emergency measures and promises. The bins for most of the street are situated right outside my gate and garden wall and are smelling as they are overfull and some residents have left black bin bags by the side of their filled bins. If there was a problem today someone should have either posted a follow up here or perhaps in this extremely rare case some overtime and extra shifts might have been arranged.. Am I to suffer this mess outside my house for yet ANOTHER week?

  • I called the office this morning and was told yes! our overflowing grey bin would definitely be collected today (Almondbury)
    The refuse vehicle passed me at about 4 pm further down the lane, so was obviously in the area, however our grey bin has not been emptied, and I now have both a grey and green bin full to capacity.
    This is not acceptable.

    My street have not had our grey bins collected that were missed last thursday we are in heckmondwike. Assuming due to the snow and a now missed green bin collection from today that only our grey bins are going to be collected at some point soon??

  • Just read the plan thanks.

  • Due to snow ( again) grey bin not emptied today . What’s the plan now please.?

  • Hi I live in Batley and our grey bins wasn’t collected last Thursday and haven’t been collected since or collected today on the 8th , when are these due to be collected ?

  • My grey bin was due to be collected today from Leeds Road, Dewsbury. I saw the bin men at dinner time collecting up Bennett lane but not the side roads. Can you confirm how long I need to leave out my black bin?Thanks

  • Michelle Walmsley

    Still NO bin collection in Scholes (Holmfirth) this week. That’s 2 weeks with no bin collections and starting to get very very full!! NOT HAPPY !!

  • Kathryn Hodgson

    Please can you confirm that grey bins from WF17 6LS the collection of which was missed today will definitely be collected tomorrow? Our green collection was missed last week (understandably) but you are not planning to catch that up and the area is now overrun with litter. I’m 9 months pregnant and due to go into hospital at any moment, so I simply can’t lift and carry refuse to the tip. I can’t keep rubbish indoors and animas are foraging in the overflowing bins. We absolutely need to be prioritised for grey bin collection in the next 24 hours for obvious environmental reasons. I would appreciate a reply and positive confirmation please.

  • Frances Livesey

    Saw the bin lorry this morning on Beverley drive Dewsbury but as yet our bins on Wakefield Road Dewsbury haven’t been collected

  • Grey bin emptied yesterday thanks!
