MEASURES introduced as part of bin strikes in Warrington are beginning to be repealed.

It comes as crippling strikes come to an end following an agreement being reached between Warrington Borough Council and Unite.

Many residents have only had bins emptied once in the past 10 weeks since industrial action began.

But bin lorries will be back on the streets from Friday.

To help ease the impact of strikes, extended opening hours were introduced at the town’s household waste recycling centres, or tips.

In addition, two temporary tips opened on Monday at Victoria Park in Latchford and on Alder Lane in Orford, at the car park near the community centre.

With industrial action now ending, the council has given an update on both these measures.

A spokesman said: “In order to support bin collections, the two household waste collection points have now been stood down immediately.

“For now, the extended opening hours at our community recycling centres will remain the same.”
