Cuts would cause public "inconvenience"

Kirklees Council will decide today whether to close all its public toilets - and to axe its kerbside glass collection. The toilets would go in Huddersfield, Dewsbury, Batley, Holmfirth and all the outlying districts.

And the council is looking at having a private company depositing large glass bins throughout the borough on Council land, free of charge.

Unison members are opposed to what they say is a cost-cutting exercise at the expense of the council's so-called "Green Agenda". They are planning to lobby councillors as they meet to discuss the cuts at Huddersfield Town Hall,
