Going to the tip? You need to register online

RESIDENTS using council household waste sites will now need to register online for a permit.

The registration and other details for vehicles used must also be lodged, for a maximum of two vehicles per home.

It is part of a Kirklees Council crackdown to stop users coming from outside the area to tip their waste.

North Kirklees has two household waste sites, Weaving Lane in Dewsbury and Nab Lane in Birstall, with three others elsewhere.

The permit system begins on Monday, July 11, but applications are already being taken on the Kirklees website.

Once registered online, users disposing of waste materials will no longer need the old ‘green card’ permit with them when they arrive.

Vehicles banned include box-type vans, vans exceeding three tonnes, flat-bed trucks, mini-buses and horse boxes.

Cars, including estates, people carriers and 4x4s without pick-ups, are allowed.

Registration of vehicles weighing up to three tonnes can take up to three days for a decision.

Batteries, cooking oil, garden waste, paper, textiles and wood are among the items that can be disposed of.

MP Jo Cox (Lab, Batley and Spen) offered to help consituents who do not have access to the internet.

She said: “I know there is a mixed reaction to this change and that it has caught a lot of people by surprise.

“Anyone in Batley and Spen worried about registering due to not having the internet can contact my office and my staff will happily do it for them.”

Her office can be contacted on 01924 910499.
