   Annual Garden Waste Collection Shutdown Results Published by Cheshire East Council    August 8, 2014

Following feedback on the garden waste shutdown during winter 2013/14, Cheshire East Council undertook a consultation on the proposed winter shutdown for 2014/15. The consultation aimed to assess views of residents about the timing of the shutdown, the length of shutdown and the preferred method of communication to residents. The survey was open for a six week period during June/July 2014 . Residents were invited to answer an online questionnaire and were also advised that potential respondents could go to Cheshire East libraries/ customer contact points to complete the survey. Overall a total of 2,527 responses were returned from respondents across Cheshire East.

The headline results were as follows:

  • shutdown to run for 12 weeks
  • shutdown to start beginning of December and restart mid-February
  • Shutdown to be communicated by a bin sticker and local media.
