Slam Dunk your rubbish in the Basketbin

There’s a new way to dunk your rubbish on the junction of Spring Hall Lane and Gibbet Street.

Funded by the Litter Innovation Fund, the Basketbin is an original innovation in the fight against litter in Calderdale.


The bin was officially opened by the Mayor of Calderdale, with special guest Mike Tuck Captain of Sheffield Sharks Basketball Team, who had the honour of performing the first slam dunk. Children from Halifax Academy and Mount Pellon School were also at the opening and had fun dunking their rubbish.

Councillors Shoukat and Naeem attended the opening event with staff from Halifax Central Initiative, Community Safety Wardens and staff from the Waste Management Team.
