They may be short of money but Kirklees Council is no longer taking cash from customers.
From next Friday the council will be removing cash payment kiosks from its customer service centres and some other council venues.
The Payzone facility will also be scrapped.
The council says residents should pay their council tax, business rates, and other council bills by direct debit.
The plan is expected to save the council £200,000 a year.
People who want to pay cash will now have to go places with PayPoint facilities or the Post Office.
The council has also revealed it plans to start charging a fee for credit card payments in the future.
Clr Graham Turner, cabinet member for resources, said: “Direct debit is the easiest way for our customers to pay council bills, and it’s all done automatically so they don’t have to worry.
“Not only is it convenient for customers, it’s also really simple and secure as it’s protected by the direct debit guarantee.
“Reassurance and help is available from our customer service centres for those customers who need assistance in making this change.”
The council says a public consultation on the payment changes saw 71% in favour.
Customers can apply online to pay by Direct Debit at www.kirklees.gov.uk/directdebit .
They can make online payments using a debit or credit card at www.kirklees.gov.uk/payments or over the phone by calling 01484 414818.
Customers using PayPoint will need a barcode on their bill or invoice.
People who pay their water bills in cash through Kirklees Council kiosks are advised to visit www.yorkshirewater.com or check on their water bill about other payment options.
