3:00pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
THE switch to fortnightly bin collections will take place next month.
And more than 50 per cent of people who responded to Warrington Borough Council’s consultation on the move to alternate collections were positive about the change.
Councillors heard how plans for the move are progressing at an executive board meeting at the Town Hall on Monday.
Clr David Keane, executive board member for environment and public protection, said: “We had hundreds of replies to the consultation.
“We received some very supportive comments. We did receive some comments which we took on board and are making provisions for those issues.
“We have listened to our residents and are delivering a plan that will work for the town.”
Council leader Clr Terry O’Neill (LAB - Burtonwood and Winwick) added: “This is part of an overall waste strategy which will increase recycling and means less or no landfill eventually.”
