ALL grey bins in Kirklees will be emptied next week - whether it's your collection week or not.

The local authority announced today that in order to catch up on the collections missed by snow earlier this week they would attempt to empty all grey bins next week.

A spokesman said: "This will reduce the amount of general rubbish that people have in and near their homes.

"Following this, normal collections of green and grey bins will resume week commencing Monday, February 4."

He added: "We would like to thank everyone for their patience and especially those who have done their bit this week, clearing snow from their paths and making sure that their cars are parked so that gritting and bin wagons can get through."

People can visit to check their regular bin collection dates following the catch-up service.
