Extended summer opening hours to be introduced at Wirral tips

Wirral Household Waste Recycling Centres will open longer over the spring and summer months.

During the spring each year, the waste and recycling centres open for longer so that residents can take advantage of the lighter evenings. From Saturday 1st April the region’s Centres will be open from 8.00am until 8.00pm.

There are three Household Waste Recycling Centres in Wirral. They are operated by resource management company Veolia on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA).

Lesley Worswick, Chief Executive of MRWA, said, “The Recycling Centres 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 and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items. The lighter spring and summer nights mean we can stay open for longer.”

Householders can check www.recycleright.org.uk  for details of what can be accepted at their local site.

The Centres provide a popular service for residents and can become extremely busy at peak times so visits should be planned carefully.

There is a system in place for those who wish to visit in a van or with a large trailer. Bookings can be made at www.merseysidewda.gov.uk
