Merseyside Recycling Centres switch to shorter winter hours

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

From Wednesday 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 13 Household Waste Recycling Centres in the region. They are operated by Veolia Environmental Services on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA).

Carl Beer, Chief Executive of MRWA, said: “Merseyside householders can use the Centres to recycle a host of items - from cans, car batteries and cardboard to garden waste, glass, paper, scrap metal, textiles and timber, and more.”
