Our Transfer Stations play a vital role in segregating and transporting waste and recycling from homes across the region.
Each waste transfer station is designed to receive residual household waste, dry recyclables and street cleansing waste.
Firstly they are delivery points for local waste collection vehicles, ensuring more time is spent by the local council’s resource in delivering their services than travelling long distances to unload.
Secondly the delivered material is then transferred onto much larger vehicles, capable of transporting up to four times as much as a kerbside collection vehicle. This transfer delivers a significant reduction in the amount of vehicle miles needed to move the waste, thereby reducing local traffic and the associated environmental impact.
The four Transfer Stations within Merseyside & Halton are located at Bidston, Gillmoss, Huyton and Southport.
