MERSEYSIDE RECYCLING CENTRES SWITCH TO SHORTER WINTER HOURS

Merseyside’s Recycling Centres are set to switch to their shorter winter opening hours.

From this Sunday 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).

Carl Beer, Chief Executive 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, glass bottles and jars, paper, 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. Alternatively download the Merseyside Recycling app from the App Store or Google Play Store.

The Centre at South Sefton in Bootle is home to the YMCA Community Re-use Shop. The shop is the first of its kind in Merseyside and accepts used and ‘pre-loved’ items from householders which have been dropped off at the Recycling Centre. Instead of being landfilled or recycled, the donations are cleaned and put up for sale. They include furniture, children’s’ toys, electrical items and tools/bric-a-brac.

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.
