Cheshire household recycling up as new silver bin is used
Cheshire East found a silver lining when they decided on an all-in-one household waste collection system.
They asked residents to place all recyclables in a silver bin and it has worked so well that Cheshire East is now the second-best performing borough in the northwest – and in the top 50 nationally – when it comes to recycling.
Latest figures show that 52.9 percent of household waste – 3.9 percent up on the previous year – is now being either recycled, reused or composted.
A spokesperson for Cheshire East said: ‘The impressive figures are largely down to the introduction of the all-in-one silver bin system in 2011. The system simplifies recycling for residents by asking them to place all recyclables in one bin which is collected fortnightly.
Residual household waste collections are made on the alternate week.’ Said Councillor David Topping, the Cabinet member in charge of the environment: “These figures are excellent news and I would like to thank residents for working with us to make Cheshire East a cleaner and greener place to live.”

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
