Manchester waste collection and street cleaning
Manchester City Council plans to collect general waste fortnightly rather than weekly, although food waste collection will still be weekly. One collection round will be removed, while a bulky waste charge will be introduced for three or more collections per household per year.
Meanwhile, overnight street cleaning - between midnight and 6am - will end across the city. Instead, workers will wait until 6am before clearing the streets of debris left the night before.
In addition, street washing (to remove chewing gum etc) will be halved.
