No gar­den waste taken for 10 weeks

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

THE dates for the shut­down on gar­den waste col­lec­tions have been an­nounced.

Cheshire East Coun­cil will not make any green or brown bin col­lec­tions from Sunday, De­cem­ber 6, un­til Sunday, Fe­bru­ary 14.

This means any­one wish­ing to dis­pose of leaves, grass, bark and flow­ers will not be able to use their gar­den refuse bins for 10 weeks.

With the col­lec­tions tak­ing place only once ev­ery two weeks, this could mean that your fi­nal col­lec­tion has al­ready taken place, or is due to take place in the next few days.

Res­i­dents are urged to check the on­line cal­en­dar to find out the date of their fi­nal col­lec­tion, with less than two weeks un­til the shut­down.

The de­ci­sion to stop col­lect­ing bins used to dis­pose of gar­den waste was made fol­low­ing a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion last year.

Res­i­dents can dis­pose of green waste at house­hold re­cy­cling cen­tres around the bor­ough in­clud­ing Mac­cles­field, Bolling­ton and Poyn­ton.

For more in­for­ma­tion go to on­­col­lec­tion­day.

●● Dec 3 is last day for green bin col­lec­tions
