Clutter-free start to 2012 for Winsford residents

25 January 2012

Residents of Winsford’s Over estate are enjoying a clutter-free start to 2012 - thanks to Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Almost 1000kgs of waste was collected at a Community Skip Day where local residents were encouraged to recycle or dispose of unwanted items.

The Council's Waste Management Team collected 980kgs of waste, of which 680kgs will be recycled.

The event was funded by local Councillor Lynda Jones through the Member Budget Scheme after discussing the issue of waste with local residents.

It was supported by the Council's Winsford and Rural East Area Working Team, Waste Management Team and Cheshire Police.

Councillor Jones said: "The Community Skip Day gave residents the opportunity to dispose of any waste or unwanted items, which is particularly useful at this time of year where there is often more waste than usual due to the festive period."
