Hop on the bus for recycling advice

An ‘Advice Bus’ roadshow hits the streets of Liverpool on Friday 26 May with all the answers to your recycling questions.

The bus, which is supported by Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) and its contractor Veolia, will be at the junction of Longfellow Street/Cullen Street in L8 with advice and information.

Officers from the council’s Recycling and Waste Minimisation Team will be in attendance alongside MRWA who will be sharing messages and information around recycling, especially what can and cannot be recycled, and a reminder not to put plastic bags in blue bins.

Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said: “We’ve made huge progress in recent years in increasing recycling rates in Liverpool but we know we can do more, particularly in communities where some residents do not have English as their first language.

“The bus is a welcome addition to the work we are already doing such as rolling out larger recycling sacks and improving the condition of back alleys where waste is stored.”

The bus – which is being supplied by resource management company, Veolia – will also be promoting recycling opportunities at the regions 16 Household Waste Recycling Centres. The free-to-use centres are located across neighbourhoods so that householders can recycle and dispose of items from their own homes – everything from grass cuttings to mattresses. Most centres can recycle more than 40 different items and materials. To find the nearest centre in Liverpool click here
