When getting rid of your waste, you do have a couple of options other then using a skip hire service including council collections, charity shops, the local tip and an alternative to skip hire service.
Charity Shop – Donating is the easiest way to get rid of your unwanted items. Some charities can even offer you a free collection service. However, donated items need to be good quality as they will need to be sold.
Council Collection – Most local Councils provide a collection service for bulky household items such as furniture and DIY waste. The service can be cost effective as well as convenient as they can collect items from outside your home.
Council Tip – Once you have cleared your property or unwanted items, you could take it yourself to a local council tip. You can get rid of a variety of waste all in one place from wood and timber to general waste. Please be aware that many will not accept waste taken in a van.
Before considering using the council tip, you should take a look at where your local council tips are located. Below is a selection of council tips within the Huddersfield area.
- Emerald Street (Off Hillhouse Lane)
- Bent Ley Road (Meltham)
- Bromley Farm (off Barnsley Road)
- Weaving Lane (off Thornhill Road)
However, over the last few years many council tips have introduced new controversial rules and regulations. This has made it more difficult for householders to get rid of their waste. Below, are a few examples of the new controversial rules introduced by council tips in Huddersfield.
