Cheshire East Council is inviting residents to have their say on a household waste recycling centre consultation.
The council currently runs eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) for use by residents. The contract for this operation ends in 2023 and therefore preparation for the procurement of a new contract is starting to take place.
Cheshire East Council's approach to waste management is determined by its recently reviewed Municipal Waste Management Strategy.
The key aims of this strategy are to continue to encourage residents to reduce the amount of waste they produce, reuse any items, recycle and compost all they can and as a last resort, to place waste that cannot be managed any other way in the black bin. The council are striving to run a service that delivers the best for the environment.
Part of waste management is the provision of HWRCs, and the strategy shows that it is the council's responsibility to ensure that the service remains fit for purpose and follows industry best practice.
The current contract comes to an end within three years and therefore the council will review the future service provision through Ansa, their wholly-owned environmental services company.
The deadline for completion is 5pm on Monday 4 January 2020
Once the consultation closes, the council will analyse all responses, produce a summary report of them, and publish this online on their consultation web pages.
