Your Views

We want the views and opinions of everyone across Merseyside on waste issues and about how we operate as an Authority.

Community Forums

Veolia and Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority have established Community Forums across Merseyside and Halton to help improve our services, solve issues and problems, and plan for future developments.

Our facilities include 15 Household Waste Recycling Centres, 4 Waste Transfer Stations and 2 Materials Recovery Facilities providing recycling and waste services to more than 650,000 households across the region.

The Community Forums can tell you more about new developments and improvements to sites and services, as well as a chance for you to have your say and have your questions answered on waste and recycling in your area.

We run community forums centred on key sites such as our Household Waste Recycling Centre’s (HWRCs) and major facilities such as Gillmoss and Bidston Materials Recovery Facility (MRFs). These are open events for anyone to attend.

If you would like to help us develop our local approach and feedback on what we do as part of either a liaison or advisory group please get it touch with us. If you require more information call 0203 567 4200 or email stating where you live and what facilities you use.


As part of the development of new and existing facilities we are committed to undertaking detailed public consultation exercises with the residents and communities of Merseyside as well as with other key stakeholders. Any current plans for new and improved facilities can be seen on the left hand menu in this section. These will be updated as and when developments happen.
