Cheshire East Council announces new food waste recycling service starting in January

A new food waste recycling service for Cheshire East residents will start in January 2020.

From 6 January, people will start to receive a small green food caddy. This will enable food waste to be separated easily from the rest of everyday household waste.

Residents can start using their caddy as soon as they receive it. An initial supply of biodegradable liners will be provided with the caddy. However use of these is optional.

Once the caddy is full the food waste goes directly into the garden waste bin along with garden waste, with or without a liner.

Garden waste bins will be collected every two weeks. Residents should refer to the new collection calendars, that were sent to all households, for details of their collection schedule. Copies of these calendars can also be downloaded at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/bins
