VILLAGERS are fuming over plans for a 24-hour recycling business on their doorsteps.
More than a dozen people have expressed fears about noise and traffic.
The plan for a Kirkheaton site is expected to win approval later today, despite their fears.
But it will be on condition that lorry movements are limited and noise measures are put in place.
The decision is due to be made by Kirklees Council's area planning committee.
The application has been made by Matrix Direct Recycle.
The company already runs a small-scale recycling operation on the site in School Lane.
It wants to expand operations to include the handling washing machines, dishwashers, computers, televisions and kettles.
Objectors include Kirkburton Parish Council.
Two councillors have expressed fears about the disturbance and pollution they say lorries will cause.
Clr Roger Battye said: "Whichever way they go they will be a burden on nearly gridlocked roads."
Clr Angela Ellam said: "The site is surrounded by residential properties. All access roads are through residential areas."
Matrix bosses have promised that everything will be under cover and noise will be limited.
The land used to be occupied by fashion chain Bon Marche before it moved to Grange Moor.
Matrix says the chain's previous use showed the site was capable of handling lorries without fuss.
Kirklees planners say problems can be overcome with suitable measures.
A report to the committee says: "The last use of the site involved an intensive delivery and dispatch operation."
