Blue bin collections in Stockport will return to fortnightly frequency from Monday 31st August, Stockport Council has confirmed.
Collection days will be on the same day as residents’ existing calendars from that date onwards.
The council will to continue to provide a green bin collection on a fortnightly basis until March 29th 2021. After that date, the service will permanently return to a weekly collection in time for the busiest period of the year for garden waste.
If residents are unsure of when their bins are due to be collected, Stockport Council’s online tool details the schedule.
The existing calendar will expire on the 31st October 2020. A new calendar will be with residents before that date covering the following two year period.
Cllr Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport, said:
On behalf of the Council I would like to express my thanks to Stockport residents for their understanding and patience during this period when changes have had to be made due to the impact of Covid-19.
“By continuing to collect green waste on a fortnightly basis for the next eight months, returning staff can be redirected to provide additional support with cleaning in the town centre and district centres as well as helping to deal with the backlog of highways, public realm, grass cutting and tree work that did not take place during the lockdown.”
