BOOK A SLOT HERE: FORMBY AND SEFTON MEADOWS RECYCLING CENTRES


 

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) at Formby and Sefton Meadows are open to the public from 8.00am on 8.00pm via a BOOKING SYSTEM ONLY.

  • The Centres will have a limited number of slots for each day

  • This allows for the site to be serviced – i.e. for getting waste containers emptied – and also ensures that staff can monitor residents and implement social distancing rules.

  • Vans, and large trailers are currently not allowed to access any Centres. The Authority continues to develop plans on how these types of vehicles can be readmitted to HWRCs in the near future.

 

CHECK IF YOUR RECYCLING CENTRE IS OPEN


Councillors on the Authority have decided to open with restrictions and subject to traffic management plans being in place for each site.

MRWA along with its contractor Veolia will be implementing clear operating guidelines with respect to the necessity of visits, social distancing on site and queuing. Our priority at all times is the safety of residents and the hard working staff at all of our Centres.
