Merseyside’s Recycling Centres are set to switch to their shorter winter opening hours.
From Tuesday 1st October the Centres will be open from 8.00am until 5.00pm* – changing from the summer hours of 8.00am to 8.00pm.
There are 14 Household Waste Recycling Centres in the region. They are operated by resource management company Veolia on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA).
Councillor Tony Concepcion, Chairperson of MRWA, said: “We shorten the hours over the winter to coincide with the darker nights over the forthcoming months. Merseyside householders can use the Centres to recycle a host of items – from cans, car batteries and cardboard to garden waste, large plastics, scrap metal, textiles and timber, and more.”
If you’re planning to visit a Recycling Centre in a van or with a long trailer then you will need a Permit to get in – visit www.merseysidewda.gov.uk or call 0151 236 0305.
For Wirral residents, please be aware that from Monday 30th September Clatterbridge Recycling Centre will be closed for maintenance works. The facility will re-open on Monday 14th October at 8.00am.
