Merseyside’s Recycling Centres are set to switch to their shorter winter opening hours.
From Friday 1 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 (HWRCs) in the region, two of them in Liverpool – at Jericho Lane in Otterspool and Cheadle Avenue in Old Swan.
They accept a range of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, wood, and white goods.
They also accept lesser known items such as food (e.g Pringles) and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items. Householders can check www.merseysidewda.gov.uk for details of what can be accepted at their local site.
Councillor Tony Concepcion, Chairperson 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, large plastics, scrap metal, textiles and timber, and more.”
The centres are operated by Veolia on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA).
