Household waste recycling centres

Temporary changes to household waste recycling centres from August 2024

Changes to household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Cheshire East will come into effect on Monday 5 August 2024. From this date:  

  • HWRCs in Alsager, Crewe, Macclesfield and Knutsford will be open for an extra hour during weekdays, meaning over the summer months you’ll be able to visit up until 6pm.
  • If you need to visit Alsager, Crewe, Macclesfield or Knutsford HWRC during weekends or Bank Holidays, you will need to book a slot online before you arrive. This is so that queues and people’s waiting times can be managed.
  • The emergency temporary closure of Bollington, Poynton and Middlewich HWRC will take place from 5pm on Sunday 4 August.   
  • If you live in the Bollington, Poynton and Middlewich areas, a mobile household waste recycling service will be available to you – you can also visit any of the other HWRCs in Cheshire East. The mobile HWRC will alternate between the 3 towns and each town will receive 1 visit per month. This will take place on a Saturday, from 8am until 10am.

The changes are being introduced on a temporary and trial basis to ensure essential savings are made in 2024/25. They are separate to an ongoing review of household waste recycling centres.


Swettenham Village and St Peter's Church Swettenham Village both have Facebook pages. Their posts are a good source of information about local events so why not add them to organisations you follow on Facebook






SwettenhamSwettenham is a civil parish and village in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire. The parish comprises the villages of Swettenham and Kermincham and is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the Parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the East Cheshire Hills. The parish comprises the ancient church of St Peter’s, one pub - The Swettenham Arms and numerous farms and various other small businesses mostly run from home.
