Bin collection update – 8 March


After today’s snowfall our plans to catch up on missed bins has slowed down a little,  however we are still out emptying bins in line with our plan earlier in the week.

Huddersfield, Denby Dale, Holme Valley and Colne Valley areas

Our crews are emptying grey bins today only as explained in our last article.

If we haven’t emptied your bin by the end of today please leave it out as we will have crews working on Friday and on  Saturday to collect missed grey bins.

Dewsbury, Batley, Mirfield and Spen Valley areas

The teams are emptying bins as normal this week (green and grey),  with another team trying to empty any grey bins missed last week due to the snow.

Unfortunately due to the weather we haven’t been able to catch up as quickly as we would have liked.

If your grey bin hasn’t been emptied by the end of today please leave it out as we will have crews working on Friday and on  Saturday to collect missed grey bins.

What about green bins?

Unfortunately we won’t be able to collect any green bins tomorrow or Friday in either area.

If your green bin has been missed we will arrange to empty it on the next scheduled green collection.

We would like to apologise for this inconvenience this causes and thank you for your ongoing patience.

What about next week?

From Monday we will be back to collecting green and grey bins on the normal schedule in all areas.

  • We havent had our grey bin collected last week or this week. Could u plz let me know when it will be collected. Postcode wf16 9lu in heckmondwike

    My postcode is WF12 7RT I was notified that my grey bin would be emptied yesterday – this has not happened. I appreciate the weather has not been favourable but when will my bin be emptied please?

  • Was pleased to have both bins emptied today, thanks. However both bins went in one lorry! Bit insulting when I conscientiously recycle & separate all waste!!

  • Our grey bins were not collected on thursday due to the adverse weather conditions. They are still out but please bear in mind it is a very narrow street and they are back to back houses so we have a total of 16 grey bins lined up waiting to be collected. I can appreciate you have had plenty requests but please can you treat my request as a priority. The street is Walkers Mount WF17 6AU.

    Kind regards

    Miss Haladh

  • Can you tell me when grey and green bins are going to be emptied in wf128ez

  • Holmbridge? We seem to have been missed from the catch up plan- Brownhill Lane has missed two Thursday’s now due to the weather, our bins sit out in hope!
