EMMAUS COMMUNITY RE-USE SHOPS
The Community Reuse Shops delivered by a partnership of Emmaus, MRWA and Veolia. The Shops at the Old Swan Recycling Centre at Cheadle Avenue, and the South Sefton Recycling Centre at Irlam Road Recycling Centres accept used and ‘pre-loved’ items from Merseyside householders which have been dropped off at the Recycling Centres. Donations are cleaned, given a new lease of life and put up for sale. We are happy to accept most household items with some exceptions including soft furnishings without a fire label, safety items, baby equipment or any item that is not in a saleable condition.

ASBESTOS DISPOSAL SERVICE
Our contractor Veolia provides an asbestos disposal service to residents with cement bonded asbestos products.
To make a booking: https://www.veolia.co.uk/merseyside-and-halton/asbestos-disposal-service.
Residents are not required to dispose of a shed or garage just because it contains asbestos. If you are concerned or to confirm if you have asbestos, please contact Environmental Health Office of your local Council. We cannot recommend a contractor and advise you to contact the Environment Agency to check that any contractor is licensed to remove your waste (Tel: 0370 8506 506). If you use a contractor to remove your waste, this waste becomes trade waste and it will not be accepted at the site.
HAZARDOUS HOUSEHOLD WASTE
Some types of hazardous household waste can be disposed of by residents at our Recycling Centres. Disposal is dependent on the type and quantity of the waste. Examples of hazardous household waste include: garden chemicals, weed-killers, insecticides, household cleaning products. To find out more please complete our online form at the bottom of the page.
TRADE WASTE RECYCLING SERVICE
Our contractor Veolia – who manage the Household Waste Recycling Centres across Merseyside and Halton – operate two Trade Waste Centres at Bidston and Old Swan.
