Controversial new plans about getting rid of rubbish have been “dumped” on Kirklees residents.

Anyone who wants to use one of the borough’s five waste tips must now register for a permit.

The Examiner can reveal a new scheme was quietly introduced last Monday. It requires households to register their details online before they are allowed to use any of the council’s waste and recycling centres.

The registrations and details of the vehicles used to take rubbish to the tip must be lodged with the council via their website. Only two vehicles can be submitted per home.

At the same time, the council has suspended its bulky waste collection service until July 11 at which point it will begin charging customers to remove their items.

The fees have not yet been published.

The service will be closed for seven weeks to allow staff to catch up the backlog of requests already logged.

An email leaked to the Examiner shows staff and councillors have been advised to tell angry residents to donate to charity shops or ask a friend, relative or neighbour to help them take it to the tip.

The memo to councillors says bulky waste collection waiting times will be improved to approximately 15 working days (three weeks) once the new system is introduced.

Controversial changes to the waste and refuse service were sanctioned by the council’s cabinet last March as part of a £1.2m savings to the street cleaning and refuse budget.

The council said it would no longer collect certain types of waste that it wasn’t legally required to including soil, rubble and plasterboard.

A list of accepted items published on the council’s website alongside the new permit details does not include any of the above.

Garden waste is included.

Cars, estates, people carriers and 4x4s (without pick-ups) will get immediate confirmation and can use the centres straight away.

Registration of vans and some 4x4s vehicles requires more detail and can take up to three days for our decision.
