Trafford Council closes Altrincham tip until further notice

Trafford Council has updated its lockdown guidance to clarify that all household waste recycling centres are closed until further notice.

The order from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, which follows government advice, includes the tip on Sinderland Road in Altrincham – as well as the other Trafford tip in Stretford.

The council, which has also stopped collecting green bins with effect from this week, has also said that people should avoid gardening or grass-cutting if they don’t have a compost bin or compost heap.
