Garden waste collections in hibernation for winter
The garden waste collection service in Cheshire East will be suspended again this winter to cut unnecessary costs and rationalise resources.
Cheshire East Council’s wholly-owned environmental services company Ansa will suspend collections of garden waste from Sunday, December 3, 2017, through to Sunday, February 11, 2018.
Residents are asked to check the council’s website for information about the ‘last’ and ‘next’ green waste collections in their area.
Any green waste during this period can be taken to one of the council’s household recycling centres.
The interruption applies to green waste only. Collections of normal household waste, including recyclables, will continue.
Councillor Don Stockton, cabinet member for assets and regeneration, said: “I am grateful to our residents for their continued cooperation with this annual change to our waste collection service and wish to thank them in advance for their support.
“This is for a short period only during the winter months and it does make sense to suspend the green waste collection when, traditionally, there is so little garden waste for our operatives to collect.
“Our household recycling centres are open every day except Christmas Day and we would urge residents to dispose of any garden waste at one of these centres during this period.”
