Welcome to MRWA


Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) is a statutory authority established in 1986, following the abolition of Merseyside County Council, to undertake the household waste disposal functions for local authorities across Merseyside – Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. MRWA takes a lead in advocating recycling, waste minimisation and the safe and effective disposal of household waste for Merseyside’s residents.
