RUBBISH hasn’t been collected from a Huddersfield street since early January.

And resident Andrea Long is angry that Kirklees Council hasn’t picked up her recyclable waste for three months.

She lives in a row of seven terraced houses behind the Top Chef Chinese takeaway at Westgate in Almondbury.

For access reasons, five of the homes have bins without wheels.

Andrea, 41, said: “In October the council gave us all new green bins. For the first month the collections were fine.

“But then they didn’t turn up for eight weeks. They came round after Christmas to empty the bins and they left me 51 recycling bags. They haven’t been back since.”

There are now 17 green bags of recyclable waste at the row of terraces.

Andrea, who lives with her 11-year-old son Daniel, has repeatedly called and emailed the council to complain.

She said: “Kirklees Council has been absolutely diabolical. They gave us these green bins in the first place so that we could recycle.

“The first few times, they came round to the terrace, took the bins out to the wagon and emptied them.

“But now the council are saying that we have to leave the bags at the side of the takeaway.”

Last week Andrea emailed cleansing manager Paul Whittaker.

On Friday he promised that her rubbish would be collected on Monday – but the bags were not picked up.

A council spokeswoman said: “This is something that we need to sort out and we will be contacting residents shortly. Thank-you for bringing it to our attention.”
