Suspension of Green Bin recycling had been extended to w/c 1st March


Garden waste collection is normally suspended for four weeks over the winter in the borough and this year was scheduled to happen between Monday, 14 December and Sunday, 10 January, 2021. Before Christmas kerbside collection service calendars were delivered to every household in the borough confirming the four-week garden waste suspension period.

However the Cheshire West and Chester Council had decided "to extend this suspension of the garden waste collection service from Monday, 11 January to Monday, 8 February, 2021 - it has now been extended further until after 1st March !  This will provide Cheshire West Recycling (CWR) with greater flexibility, to ensure that core waste and recycling collections can be maintained over the busiest period of the year, whilst mitigating the added risks presented by COVID-19".

Note that the Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) remain open to accept garden waste if your trip is essential.
