Garden waste collections suspended until February

GARDEN waste collections in Frodsham and across West Cheshire will be suspended for longer than usual this Christmas – because of the pandemic.
The collection service is normally suspended for four weeks and was due to take place between December 14 and January 12.
Calendars have already been delivered to every house in the borough confirming this.
However, a decision has now been taken to extend this suspension of the garden waste collection service to February 8 to ensure that core waste and recycling collections can be maintained over the busiest period of the year, while mitigating the added risks presented by Covid-19.
A scheme to assist with the collection and deposit of real Christmas trees will be promoted through local charities and supported by the Cheshire West and Chester’s Street Care service.
After Monday, January 4 real Christmas trees can be dropped off for the council to reuse them in parks and open spaces at Castle Park, Frodsham.
Trees will be mulched for use throughout the year in parks and gardens
Deputy leader of the council Karen Shore said: “By extending the suspension of our garden waste collections we will give Cheshire West Recycling the resilience to cope with the added pressures caused by the on-going pandemic.”
