The Parish Council has been informed by Cheshire East Council that part of its’ budget setting for 2018-19, would be a consultation on proposals to charge for new and replacement bins.
Cheshire East are currently supplying 10,000 new or replacement bins per year at a cost of almost £360,000. There is a ten-week public consultation to allow residents to have their say on proposals to bring in charges for new or replacement bins. This consultation began on Tuesday 13th March and will run until Monday 21st May 2018. The survey is available online HERE and at all Cheshire East libraries.
Charges would be agreed on an annual basis as part of Cheshire East’s fees and charges planning and are likely to be in the region of £30 each for recycling and garden waste bins, £35 for a standard black residual bin, or £25 for a smaller residual bin. A 25 per cent concession will be made for households in receipt of eligible welfare support.
Cheshire East are also proposing to put the addresses of residents on all new bins, to help reduce the theft of bins across the borough.
