A £450,000 facelift for a Kirklees Council household waste recycling plant will be put to a group of councillors for approval later this month.
The project at Meltham Mills will be recommended to the council's Cabinet Committee for Regeneration.
It will provide 10 container bays for householders to tip their waste for recycling, together with major improvements to the site.
Clr Ann Denham, cabinet member for the environment, said: "The site is badly in need of an upgrade to improve the facilities, make the site more attractive to users and thus help boost our recycling efforts in the district."
Meltham is one of four household waste recycling sites in Kirklees, the other three being in Huddersfield, Dewsbury, and Birstall.
Clr Denham added: "The recycling sites are a very important part of our recycling strategies and make a vital contribution to our overall recycling efforts.
"The sites need to be modern, safe, clean and customer-friendly.
"The other sites have been upgraded and the scheme proposed will see the same quality and standard of facilities for householders who use the Meltham site.
"The Meltham plant serves around 25,000 households.
"When the upgrade is completed it will be much safer, have more skips and better traffic flow arrangements, which will speed up the time people need to stay on the site when disposing of their recyclable goods."
Extra land has been acquired for the scheme, which will see unusable buildings demolished and new ones built.
