Green Bin Collection

green bin

Last week the green bins were collected in Tarvin. Where I live in Platts Lane I noted that most houses had put a bin out. I had a look at how full some of the bins were and my guess was that the average was three-quarters full. Why is this important? Well, next year between November and March Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) will not be doing any green bin collections. This was a budget cut which was consulted on last year but not to be implemented until 2015/16.

My survey was obviously not comprehensive but, even if the bins I looked at in Platts Lane were abnormally full, it is likely that a considerable amount of green waste is generated over the five winter months. So far as I know, CWaC has not said what arrangements it is going to make for green waste when fortnightly collections are suspended. Perhaps we will be allowed to use our black household waste bins instead, but will they have the capacity?
