From mid-November, stickers will be placed on bins of those households whose normal collections fall on Christmas Day, the bank holiday and New Year’s Day, advising residents of changes to their collection schedule over the Christmas and New Year period.
Over the Christmas period there will be no garden waste collections from Tuesday 22 December, collections will resume on Monday January 4, 2021.
Councillor Laura Crane, Cheshire East Council cabinet member responsible for environmental services, said: “The council is committed to delivering a full waste and recycling service despite the current lockdown measures. We want to reassure residents that, as with the first lockdown in March, waste collections will not be affected, and our crews will continue to deliver a dedicated service across Cheshire East.
“As in previous years, we will also be issuing our Christmas collection stickers from mid-November and would like to remind residents to check these new bin dates for the bank holidays over the festive period.
“Some collections will be brought forward, and others pushed back, depending on your normal bin collection day. There will be no garden waste collections from Tuesday 22 December but please continue to put food waste into garden waste bins, ready for collections to restart on Monday 4 January. If space in your garden bin is limited, please put your food waste into your black bin as a temporary measure.
“I would like to express my thanks to residents who have continued to recycle during the pandemic and also offer my thanks to our hard-working crews as they continue to sustain all waste collection services during these unprecedented times.”
