The collection of household green waste by Cheshire East Council will once again be suspended during the winter period because of a drop in demand over the festive season.
The garden waste service will be cease from the week beginning Sunday, 4th December, and restart during the week beginning Sunday 12th February 2017.
Garden waste is collected fortnightly, so residents are advised to check the Council's website for details of their last collection of 2016 and first collection of 2017.
During the shutdown, residents can take their garden waste to the household waste recycling centres at Congleton, Knutsford or Macclesfield which are open all year round, seven days a week, except for Christmas Day.
Councillor Don Stockton, cabinet member for regeneration, said; "It makes sense to suspend the garden waste service over the winter months as we know that demand is low at this time of year.
"Anyone who has garden waste to dispose of over the festive season can of course visit any of the household waste recycling centres across Cheshire East."
Details of the garden waste service winter shutdown are available via the online calendar.
