bin store cleared of rubbish in Nantwich

Piles of rotting rubbish have been cleared from outside a block of Nantwich apartments – within hours of Nantwich News highlighting the problem.

Residents at Weaver House and Wheelock House, on Barony Road, were relieved today after property management contractors arrived to clear the rubbish.

We highlighted the issue on Friday as images showed large piles of rubbish in the bin store outside the flats.

Bins had not been collected for more than two weeks, and residents said Cheshire East Council failed to turn up on Bank Holiday Monday which caused the build up.

Resident Simon Ashley, who was one of the first people to move into the complex, said: “I would just like to say a big thank you to Nantwich News.

“I can again open my patio doors without the horrible bin smell.”

Residents had complained of horrific smells and seen rats and other animals in and around the bin store.

On Friday, we contacted both Guinness Housing, who own some of the apartments, and the property management company First Port.

At 7am on Saturday, Cheshire East Council teams arrived to clear the rubbish (pictured, below) and it was all gone by Saturday morning.

A spokesperson for Cheshire East Council said: “Our crews have been experiencing difficulties accessing the collection point recently, as unfortunately there is a shortage of space here.

“Additionally, bins are often overfilled. The crews do their best to collect but have found on occasions that access to the bins is blocked by bulky items.

“On Bank Holiday Monday, this was not a designated collection date for general waste. There are no recycling bins at this location, so there was no collection on that date.

“We are trying to contact Guinness with regard to bin provision for these properties.”
