A CONSULTATION on the future of recycling will start on Monday.

It comes in the wake of the decision to close Stockton Heath Recycling Centre as part of a new contract for recycling services.

The council has already reached its 2020 target to recycle 50 per cent of its waste and now aims to reach 70 per cent by 2030.

Clr David Keane, executive board member for environment and public protection, said: “To achieve this, the service we provide to residents will need to evolve. We need your support and ideas to help us shape the future of waste and recycling services in Warrington.

“We would also like to understand better how you use the existing services, what you would like to see in the future to help us achieve our long term targets as well as your views on the proposed changes to the community recycling centres.”

The four week consultation will be available online at warrington.gov.uk/hwrconsultation.

Paper copies are available on request and will also be in council buildings, neighbourhood hubs and libraries.
