BOTTLES, empty takeaway boxes and nightclub flyers carpet King Street.
The drinkers and clubbers who strolled along these streets just hours ago are now asleep.
But, like magic, when they wake up with hangovers and wander to town for their Sunday papers the rubbish will have gone.
At the crack of dawn a small team armed with brushes and litter-pickers begin work.
They move all the rubbish into the road, where vehicles, known as Scarabs pick it up.
By the time people start to come back to town to go to church or do some shopping the cleansing team are at home putting their feet up.
Cleansing officer Steve Cartwright leads the early morning team.
He said the aim was to get the streets cleared before anyone even noticed the litter problem.
"It has got to be get in, get it clean and then get out, so people don't even know we are here or there is a job to be done," said the 36-year-old from Dalton.
"We work seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. But Saturday and Sunday mornings are the biggest problem for us, because of the number of people we have in the town centre the night before.
"Most people don't even think about where all the mess goes, so I suppose that means we are doing our job effectively."
In the last decade nightlife in Huddersfield has increased. Now, more and more clubs and bars hand out flyers trying to entice people through their doors.
For Steve and his team these cause a major problem.
He said: "People take them and immediately drop them. If it rains and there is a frost the flyers stick to the ground and are impossible to get up.
"There are moves to make the clubs and bars responsible for litter, but it is a big problem for us.
"It is satisfying once we are finished seeing all the streets looking tidy."
