Cheshire East residents are reminded that changes are being made to bin collections over Christmas and the New Year

There will be no garden waste collections between 23rd December and 3rd January.

The Council has reduced this break for garden waste collections to just two weeks this year from 11 weeks last year to just two weeks this year, so there will be no garden waste collections between 23rd December and 3rd January.

Although the suspension has been scaled back, the Council says a small shut down is still required to enable the service to focus on silver and black bin collections - as these may contain more waste and recycling than usual due to the Christmas and New Year period.

There will be changes for any resident who has a collection that would fall on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day, these are:

● Wednesday 25 December (Christmas Day)

Silver bins (recycling) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Monday 23 December.

Black bins (household waste) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Tuesday 24 December;

● Thursday 26 December (Boxing Day)

Silver bins (recycling) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Friday 27 December.

Black bins (household waste) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Monday 30 December; and

● Wednesday 1 January (New Years Day)

Silver bins (recycling) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Tuesday 31 December.

Black bins (household waste) due to be emptied on this day will be emptied on Thursday 2 January.

Ralph Kemp, Cheshire East Council's head of environmental services said: "I urge all residents to make sure they are prepared for the suspension to garden waste collections, the last collection date for this year will be 22 December. During the shutdown residents can take their garden waste to any of the Cheshire East household waste recycling centres.

"Some households will find that they are also affected by changes to waste and recycling collections due to the Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day bank holiday. Please check the reverse of your collection calendar for full information or check the information on our website."

Household waste recycling centres are located in Alsager, Bollington, Congleton, Crewe, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Middlewich or Poynton. These are open every day except Christmas Day.
