Last chance to have your say on recycling and waste disposal in the borough
10 March 2021There are just a few more days to have your say on the future of recycling and waste disposal services in the borough. Cheshire West and Chester Council’s eight-week waste and recycling services consultation will close on Thursday 18 March 2021.
The ‘Don’t let your future go to waste’ consultation launched in January 2021. The consultation describes the current waste service in the borough, shares the challenges and opportunities the Council faces over the next 10 years and asks for feedback on proposed key priorities for the new Waste Strategy and options currently being considered.
Future proposals seek to address how the borough can continue to reduce the amount of waste it produces and encourage greater recycling.
The Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, Councillor Karen Shore said: “We are preparing a new strategy to ensure that our vision and priorities reflect the needs of our communities, are aligned to emerging national plans and policies, as well as helping to address the climate emergency.
“The new strategy will also help us to ensure that waste collection and recycling services are managed in cost-effective way, to address the unprecedented budget challenges faced by the Council.
“So far we have received more than 13,000 responses to the consultation, which is wonderful. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to get involved – if you haven’t taken part yet, it’s not too late to give your views.”
The consultation closes on Thursday 18 March and residents can give their views by taking part online at: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/wasteconsultation.
