Household Waste Recycling Centre provision consultation summary

Between 17 November 2016 and 10 January 2017 Cheshire East Council consulted on proposals for the future of Household Waste Recycling Centre provision in the borough. A report summarising the responses is now available.

Information about the proposed environmental hub

Demolition and asbestos removal has been ongoing on site since September 2015 and the site is now clear of any dangerous / unstable structures.  Specialist teams have also been on site clearing all of the above ground contamination and regular monitoring checks have been undertaken to measure things like air, dust and noise pollution. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and the Environment Agency have also been kept fully informed of all works on site.

The plans were passed for approval by the Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board on 23rd September 2015. The Decision Notice was issued on 23rd December 2015.

Leave It Loose

Leave it loose!

Why does leaving it loose matter?

Recyclable materials put inside other items such as plastic bags, boxes or tubs are difficult for our contractor UPM to recycle. Such materials are rejected and not recycled. To ensure that all the materials in your silver bin are recycled please put them in your bin loose.

Cheshire East and its residents have worked hard to reduce the levels of non recyclable materials (contamination) in recycling collections. We are already one of the top ten performing unitary authorities in the country and by working together we will continue to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Make sure your silver bin is emptied by leaving all your recycled materials loose.

If we can’t empty your bin because of what is in it, we will place a long orange sticker on the bin explaining why we have not emptied it. Don’t let your bin get left behind…
