Win­ter halt in gar­den bin ser­vice

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

GAR­DEN waste col­lec­tions will stop for two months over the fes­tive pe­riod.

Cheshire East will sus­pend its col­lec­tions of house­hold green waste be­cause it says there is a drop in de­mand over the fes­tive sea­son.

Col­lec­tions will stop from the week be­gin­ning Sun­day, De­cem­ber 4 and restart dur­ing the week be­gin­ning Sun­day Fe­bru­ary, 12.

Coun Don Stock­ton, cab­i­net mem­ber for re­gen­er­a­tion, said: “It makes sense to sus­pend the gar­den waste ser­vice over the win­ter months as we know that de­mand is low.

“Any­one who has gar­den waste to dis­pose of can visit the house­hold waste re­cy­cling cen­tres across Cheshire East.”

The waste re­cy­cling cen­tres at Al­sager, Ar­clid, Bolling­ton, Con­gle­ton, Crewe, Knutsford, Mac­cles­field, Mid­dlewich and Poyn­ton are open all year round, seven days a week, ex­cept for Christ­mas Day.

Gar­den waste is col­lected fort­nightly, so res­i­dents are ad­vised to check the coun­cil’s web­site for de­tails of their last col­lec­tion of 2016 and first col­lec­tion of 2017.
