household waste recycling centre Cheshire East Council

Cheshire East Council has reintroduced a vehicle registration system at the Pyms Lane household waste recycling centre due to congestion.

Residents using Cheshire East Council’s household waste recycling centre site in Crewe are warned to expect delays.

Roadworks near the site, on Middlewich Road and Pyms Lane, are causing higher than normal amounts of traffic in the area.

This is having a knock-on effect for residents queuing to use the household waste recycling centre.

To help ease the traffic and the demand on the site, a vehicle number plate system will be reintroduced from today July 10 just for the Crewe site.

Drivers’ access to the site will be based on the last number on their vehicle registration plate on alternate days.

Number plates where the last number is even, i.e. 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 will be given access to the site on alternate days starting from Friday 10 July.

Number plates on which the last number is odd, i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 will be given access on alternate days from Saturday 11 July.

The rota for the first week of the restrictions is shown as follows;

Day and Registration plate ending in:

Friday 10 July
Saturday 11 July
Sunday 12 July
Monday 13 July
Tuesday 14 July
Wednesday 15 July
Thursday 16 July
Friday 17 July

The additional restrictions and measures in place at all household waste recycling centres, due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, still apply also to the Crewe site.

The roadworks around the Crewe site are due to be completed in October.

Congestion in the area is likely to continue for a number of weeks.

Residents are advised to only use the Crewe site on the relevant day for their vehicle registration plate if it’s essential or to visit the nearby Alsager site instead.
