Green Waste

Home » Newsroom » Green Waste

The collection of household green waste by Cheshire East Council will again be suspended during the winter period to save taxpayers money and because of the seasonal decline in demand.

Following a public consultation exercise earlier this year, in which the Council listened carefully to the wishes of the public, no garden waste will be collected from December 8, 2014 — February 13, 2015 inclusive.

The shutdown will help reduce carbon emissions by reducing the use of vehicles and make better use of Council resources over the coldest months of the year.

Residents are being urged to check the Council's website and online calendar for the date of their last collection in 2014 and the first collection of 2015.

Blue stickers are being attached to bins to make the public aware of the customary annual suspension of service.

Should any residents need to dispose of green waste during this period, they can still use the many household-recycling centres around the Borough.

Cheshire East Council Cabinet member for service commissioning Councillor David Topping said: "Suspending the garden waste service over the winter makes complete sense as demand at this time of year is very low and the Council can make much more efficient use of its resources.

"The Council consulted residents about the proposed winter shutdown earlier this year, as we were keen to hear their views about the timing and length of the shutdown and their preferred method of communication.

"Over 2,500 responses were received and the Council has listened carefully to those views when finalising the details of this year's winter suspension. I would like to thank all residents for their co-operation."

Householders can visit the Cheshire East website for more information about the Winter shutdown, check their collection day via the Council's Online calendar and find out where their nearest household waste recycling centre is.

Cheshire East's household recycling centres, which are located in Alsager, Arclid, Bollington, Congleton, Crewe, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Middlewich and Poynton, are open seven days a week throughout the year, with the exception of Christmas Day.
