Cheshire West Recycling (CWR) is currently conducting a review of the waste and recycling collection rounds in the borough. The existing routes have been considerably affected by housing developments since these were last reviewed by the previous provider Kier in around 2012. Between 2012 and 2020, the number of households in the borough increased by 13,000, which has resulted in a nine per cent rise in demand for the waste and recycling service.
It is anticipated that approximately 60 per cent of all properties will receive a new collection day or week rotation. These will cover bin collection rounds in all areas of the borough.
THE NEW ROUTES AND ROUNDS WILL GO LIVE ON MONDAY 11 OCTOBER 2021.
The day changes will be communicated to residents of the borough initially through a ‘bin tag’ which will be placed on all domestic bins during one collection cycle. Delivery of the tags and letters will be delivered to residents between Monday 30 August and Friday 10 September. The changes will also be communicated through the Council’s website and social media channels.
Residents will be sent a new printed bin collection calendar advising them of the changes to their collection day, along with extra information about the annual suspension of the garden waste collection service and collection arrangements during the festive period. It is anticipated that delivery of the calendars to households will begin on Monday 20 September 2021
