Your bin collection


Cheshire West Recycling provide over 440,000 refuse, recycling, food and garden waste collections each week, across Cheshire West and Chester, visiting around 160,000 households.

Cheshire West Recycling

CWR is a wholly-owned council company that has delivered waste and recycling services in the borough since 29 March 2020. All household bins in Cheshire West and Chester are collected by CWR, and all recycling and waste collection staff are employed by CWR.

We’re focused on reducing the impact of carbon on the local environment and are continually looking to recycle and recover more.

Bin collections

Please make sure your bins are put out before 7am on the day of collection.

There are fortnightly collections of your black bin for domestic non-recyclable waste. This is collected on the alternate week to your blue lidded bin for paper, card and cartons, and a red lidded bin for the rest of your recycling. There is also a brown food bin for weekly food waste collections.

The recycling wheeled bin service is:

  • Clean: secure recycling bins reduce the risk of waste escaping both before and during collections.
  • Easy: recycling is easy - there is a blue lidded bin for paper, card and cartons and a red lidded bin for the rest of your recycling.
  • Green: 40 per cent more space to recycle using bigger containers that can be collected in fewer, more energy efficient vehicles than before, reducing the carbon footprint of the service.
