Cheshire East Council is consulting on proposals to introduce charges for new and replacement waste bins.
The Council currently spends £300,000 per year on providing new and replacement waste bins, plus £60,000 on delivery costs.
In order to save this £360,000 a year they are proposing to implement a bin supply charge for this service. The charge will not apply where it can be shown that their refuse collectors have caused the damage.
Cheshire East Council is proposing to charge £30 for green and silver recycling bins and £35 for standard black bins. They are also proposing to put addresses on the bins, to help discourage theft.
The consultation can be completed online from today, Tuesday 13th March.
All consultation responses must be received by 21st May 2018.
