WEEKLY grey bin collections will not be returning toHuddersfield.
Heavy snow in the last month has disrupted refuse rounds, causing rubbish to pile up in some parts of the country.
Local government minister Bob Neill this week called for councils to bring back weekly bin collections.
The Conservative said on Tuesday: “We will be setting out measures in the coming months to help councils reverse the legacy of Labour's savage cutbacks to weekly rubbish collections.”
But a Kirklees Council spokesman said there were no plans to abandon fortnightly collections.
He said: “The current system, which was introduced in 2008, works well for the vast majority of householders and encourages people to minimise waste and recycle more.
“To reinstate weekly collections would cost us £2m a year.
“In the last five years the amount of waste burnt in Kirklees has dropped by more than 25% while the amount recycled has increased by more than 50%.
“It is unlikely this would have happened without the change to alternate week collections – and the greater the amount of waste going to landfill, the higher the cost to council tax payers.”
The spokesman added: “Despite the recent bad weather we have experienced far fewer problems with refuse collection than many other councils.
“We would like to thank our crews for their efforts and householders for their co-operation and patience when collections were delayed.”
