Liverpool City Region residents will soon have the opportunity to recycle more as Household Waste Recycling Centres open for an extra three hours every day.
From Friday 1st April the region’s Centres will be open from 8.00am until 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).
Carl Beer, Chief Executive of MRWA, said: “The Recycling Centres accept a range of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, wood, and white goods. They also accept lesser-known items such as food and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items. The lighter summer nights mean we can open for longer.”
Householders can check both www.recycleright.org.uk or www.merseysidewda.gov.uk for details of what can be accepted at their local site.
The Centres provide a popular service for residents and can become extremely busy at peak times so visits should be planned carefully.
There is a system in place for those who wish to visit in a van or with a large trailer. Bookings can be made at www.merseysidewda.gov.uk.
More information on what you can do with your household waste items can be found at www.recycleright.org.uk.
