Cllr Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport, said:
“On behalf of the council I would like to express my thanks to Stockport residents for their understanding and patience during this period when changes have had to be made due to the impact of Covid-19.

"By continuing to collect green waste on a fortnightly basis for the next eight months, returning staff can be redirected to provide additional support with cleaning in the town centre and district centres as well as helping to deal with the backlog of highways, public realm, grass cutting and tree work that did not take place during the lockdown."
