Garden Waste Will Not Be Picked Up Until February

Cheshire West and Chester Council have announced that garden waste collections, suspended since December 14, will not resume until February 2021, to ensure core waste pick ups can continue during the ongoing pandemic.
It is customary for the Green Bin collections to pause over Christmas and New Year, but they usually resume in mid-January. However, this hiatus has been extended until Monday 8 February 2021,
The council says this will provide Cheshire West Recycling (CWR) with greater flexibility, to ensure that core waste and recycling collections can be maintained over the busiest period of the year, whilst mitigating the added risks presented by Covid-19.
Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, Councillor Karen Shore said: "By extending the suspension of our garden waste collections we will give Cheshire West Recycling the resilience to cope with the added pressures caused by the on-going pandemic."
