KERBSIDE recycling is to be extended to the whole of the borough in May.
Following a successful pilot scheme involving 7,100 homes, the council will roll out the scheme to all residents from May 9.
Later this month, residents will receive two extra boxes and a small brown wheelie bin so they can separate out their cans, glass, plastic bottles, paper, card, textiles and garden waste ready for collection.
Over the next few weeks, every household will receive an information leaflet outlining exactly how the scheme will work, with a fridge magnet to remind them when to put their boxes and bins out.
The council's waste management officer, Elizabeth Entwistle, said: 'This scheme will enable everyone to have their recyclable waste collected direct from their homes using the brand new containers they will be given.
'The pilot scheme was very successful, with 90% of householders saying that they were either 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied' with the new arrangements.'
The scheme's mascot is RITA, which stands for recycling is the answer, a superhero clad in green who will appear on the information leaflets, the boxes and bins provided for recyclables and the collection vehicles.
To help residents familiarise themselves with the scheme, a series of roadshows will take place in April.
Roadshow dates: April 11, Sutton Way Hotel, Ellesmere Port, 2-6.30pm; April 12, Nags Head Car Park, Willaston,
10am-noon; Neston Town Hall car park, 2-6.30pm; April 13, Stanney Oaks Brewster's pub car park, Little Stanney, 2- 6.30pm; April 14, Westminster Shopping Centre car park,
Ellesmere Port, 2-6.30pm; April 15, Asda car park, Ellesmere Port, 2-6.30pm.
The scheme will see residents given the following additional containers for their recyclable waste:
Grey box - for clear and coloured glass jars and bottles, card packaging such as cereal and frozen food boxes and clean clothing.
Green box - newspapers, junk mail and magazines.
Brown wheelie bin - for garden waste such as grass cuttings, flowers and small branches.
Pink plastic sacks - for plastic bottles, steel and aluminium cans and tubs such as milk cartons.
Existing green wheelie bins can still be used for general waste and non-recyclable material.
