CONSERVATIVES have pledged to save monthly glass collections.
Kirklees Council’s opposition Tory group last night unveiled its budget plan for next year.
The Conservatives want to freeze council tax in 2012/13.
And the Tories also oppose several spending cuts proposed by Kirklees officers last week.
Council officials have drawn up a plan to reduce the budget by £15.7m next year.
But the Conservatives yesterday said they oppose some parts of the proposal – including the abolition of monthly glass collections, which would save £234,000 a year.
The Tories are also against the officers’ plan to close Red House Museum in Gomersal to save £116,000.
Deputy Conservative leader Clr David Hall (inset) said: “Amongst the initiatives we have put forward are proposals to save Red House Museum which the council wanted to close, and we have developed a plan to retain glass collections in the borough, which again the council wanted to stop.
