What you can take to recycle
We are working with Suez to keep as many recycling containers as possible open. However if it becomes too difficult to maintain social distancing we may have to block some of these containers off, and prioritise the household waste and garden waste containers.
Please only bring items that you cannot safely store at home.
There are no dry mixed recycling or bottle banks open on sites.
These items can be recycled (subject to containers being available)
- Fridges, freezers and fridge freezers
- General and bulky waste
- Garden waste
- Scrap metal
- Small electricals
- Televisions and cathode-ray tubes
- Plasterboard (you need to book for free disposal of plasterboard)
- Asbestos - you need to book in advance for free disposal of asbestos by calling 01484 536967. Additional advice on disposing of asbestos safely can be found in Asbestos advice.
What you can't take to recycle
- Ceramics - for example tiles, toilets, sinks and cisterns
- Paving slabs
These items cannot be accepted at household waste recycling centres. You can arrange to have this material collected by the council for a fee. Order a Bulky household waste collection.
Please note the council can only take small manageable amounts of soil, rubble and hard core, only if the waste is bagged, the bag can be no bigger than 15 kilos, up to a total of 4 bags and the bags must be strong enough to be able to transport to the vehicle without splitting.
New Reuse service launched at two Household Waste Recycling Centres
Kirklees residents can now take even more action to combat climate change following the introduction of our Reuse service at two Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) in the district.
Visitors to the HRWCs will find designated containers at:
- Emerald Street in Huddersfield
- Weaving Lane in Dewsbury
There you can leave items that are of good enough quality to be reused by others. Working in partnership with local charities, the items will be sorted then made available to good causes, who will sell them to raise funds.
These items can be recycled
From 29th November 2021, residents will be able to deposit the following in the two Reuse containers:-
- Clothing, Bedding/Curtains
- Complete Toys
- Small electrical items (must be working)
- Furniture - small items that one person can carry
- Books, CDs, Records and DVDs
- Jewellery, Bric-a-brac
- Household items
- Nursery/baby Equipment.
What you can't take to recycle
Items that cannot be accepted at this time include:-
- Electrical cookers
- Ceiling light fittings
- Child car seats
- Car Batteries
- Gas Appliances
- Fridges or freezers, Washing Machines
- Pirate copied CDs and DVDs
Loose items should be left in carrier or bin bags to assist our sorters
Bulky waste collections, garden waste collections and skips
If you have waste that cannot be taken to the tip, have started a DIY project, or clear out you might want to consider one of the following options:
Arrange to have your material collected by the council for a fee through a Bulky household waste collection.
- We can only take small manageable amounts of soil, rubble and hard-core, and only if the waste is bagged.
- Bags can be no bigger than 15 kilos, up to a total of 4 bags and the bags must be strong enough to be able to transport to the vehicle without splitting.
If you have excess garden waste regularly, you can subscribe to the fortnightly garden waste service.
Hire a skip by searching for skip hire online. Please make sure you get a copy of their Waste Transfer Licence/Duty of Care to make sure they are a legitimate business.
