KIRKLEES Council's Cabinet has been ordered to look again at controversial waste policies.
Charges for bulky waste collections and the permit system for using household waste tips will be reviewed.
The move came after it was claimed there had been a massive increase in fly-tipping.
Labour and Conservatives teamed up at the full council meeting yesterday to force the Liberal Democrat Cabinet to reconsider.
Two motions were passed calling for an end to permits at Kirklees tips and a stop to charges for the collection of bulky items.
Labour and Tory councillors said there had been a massive rise in fly-tipping since the introduction of both permits and charges in the spring.
Many members of the public who attended the meeting agreed.
Geraldine Gardner, a member of Botham Hall residents' association, said: "We shouldn't have to pay. We are already paying in our council tax."
Norah Kelly, of Dalton asked: "Why are we charged so much? It's ridiculous."
Clr David Payne, Cabinet member for the environment, said there was no evidence of a long-term increase in fly-tipping as a result of the measures.
Labour group leader Clr Mehboob Khan said both new schemes were ill-conceived.
