From Monday 20th February 2017 you will need to pre book online before you can dispose of your plaster and plasterboard waste at a Household Waste & Recycling Centre. Disposal is still free, but must be booked in advance.

The household waste recycling centres in Kirklees allow the public to bring waste materials to be recycled or disposed of.

You must register your vehicle to use these centres – you no longer need to remember to bring a printed permit with you. As you drive into one of our sites a member of staff will check your vehicle registration number on a tablet computer. As long as you're registered you'll be able to unload your vehicle as normal.

You can register two vehicles to your home address in Kirklees.

If you have a large vehicle, you will also need to upload an image of page 2 of your V5 vehicle registration document.
