31.03.20Household Waste Recycling Centres are closed Cheshire West and Chester Council and its partners HM Martins have taken the decision to close all household waste recycling centres in the borough until further notice. Residents are asked to keep bulky items, DIY waste and other waste they usually take to the recycling centre stored safely at home until the sites re open. Residents are asked not to put items out with the kerbside collections as they will not be collected. Dropping items outside a closed HWRC or on any public space will be classed as fly tipping.
31.03.20 Latest Information from Cheshire West and Chester Council. An emergency response for people living in west Cheshire has been launched to support those vulnerable groups at higher risk from serious complications as a result of COVID-19 infection. The government is now advising people with the most serious underlying conditions to remain in strict isolation, to protect themselves and the NHS. Councils across the country have now established local hubs, to support people to access food, medical supplies and social support. This has been achieved by co-ordinating work between front-line council and NHS staff, partner agencies, local and national businesses and volunteers. Over 1500 people have responded to Cheshire West and Chester’s call for a community response, to help ensure that physical distancing doesn’t need to mean social isolation. People in the most vulnerable groups, based on their medical condition, are being contacted by the government, and referred onto help from their local council if they can’t meet their needs with the help of friends and families. The first packages of support have now been received. A wider group of local people may also need support to protect themselves from the virus. Cheshire West and Chester Council have therefore launched a dedicated helpline 0300 123 7031 which will run 7 days a week from 8am to 7pm. The helpline will provide advice and support, and where necessary make arrangements for food, medicines and social contact. You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org. More local information on ‘Coping at home with Coronavirus’ can be found on the Live Well Cheshire West website. The latest government advice on staying at home can be found on the GOV.UK website.
