Bollington tip closure delayed

Household waste recycling centres in Bollington, Poynton and Middlewich ,which were scheduled to close on April 1, will remain open until Cheshire East Council has worked out alternative provision.

The closures, which sparked anger across the borough, were approved in February in a bid to save an estimated £750,000 in the coming 2024/25 financial year.

Cheshire East released a statement this week saying: “The emergency closure of Bollington, Poynton and Middlewich HWRCs is currently targeted to take place in the next two to three months.

“The council is working to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible and as part of this, will be putting in place mitigation measures.

“These will include later mid-week evening opening hours at its four core sites – Alsager, Crewe, Knutsford and Macclesfield – and the introduction, on a trial basis, of a mobile household waste recycling service for residents in the Bollington, Poynton and Middlewich areas.”

It continues: “The final details of these mitigation measures continue to be developed but will be timed to go live at the same time to limit any disruption as much as possible.”

“The council will be engaging with town councils to explore opportunities for working in partnership to support HWRC services in their local areas.”
