Longer hours at recycling centres

Merseyside residents will have the opportunity to recycle more from Wednesday 1 April as the region’s Household Waste Recycling Centres open for an extra three hours every day.

The 13 Recycling Centres, which are provided by Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA), will be switching to their summer opening hours, meaning they’ll be open from 8.00am until 8.00pm(note: the Rainhill centre is open 9.00am–6.00pm on Saturdays; 9.00am–3.00pm on Sundays)

The Recycling Centres are situated throughout the region with all 13 available to use for all Merseyside householders.

Carl Beer, Chief Executive of MRWA, said: “Our Centres accept all sorts of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, furniture, soil, timber, electrical items and white goods, plus much more.”

A Van Permit scheme is in operation at all the sites meaning if you are planning to use a van or large trailer then you will need a Permit. Permits are free of charge.

All of the Centres will also be open as normal throughout the Easter weekend.
