Longer hours for Merseyside Recycling Centres


Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Merseyside residents will have the opportunity to recycle more from Saturday 1st April as the region’s Household Waste Recycling Centres open for an extra three hours every day.

The 14 Recycling Centres, which are provided by Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) and operated by resource management company Veolia, will be switching to their summer opening hours, meaning they’ll be open from 8.00am until 8.00pm*, seven days a week.

The Recycling Centres are situated throughout the region with all 14 available to use for all Merseyside householders. They accept all sorts of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, furniture, soil, timber, electrical items and white goods, plus much more.

A Van Permit scheme is in operation at all the sites meaning if you are planning to use a van or large trailer then you will need a Permit. Permits are free of charge.

Further details about Merseyside’s Household Waste Recycling Centres and the Permit Scheme can be found at www.merseysidewda.gov.uk or by calling MRWA on 0151 255 1444.
