There are some exciting changes in recycling and waste collections coming to all residents from 1 August which make it easier to recycle more in Sefton.

There’s been a lot of work going on behind the scenes preparing for the new improved service and this has involved rearranging many of the current collection rounds. More information will follow and all households will receive written notification of these changes in July with a new printed collection calendar.

In the meantime although current printed calendars have expired there are no changes. We are asking all residents to continue with their current collection patterns and keep up the good work of recycling.

Cllr John Fairclough, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said: “We have consistently been the top area of Merseyside for recycling rates which is a fantastic achievement.  Now we’re planning changes from the 1 August that will make it even easier for our residents to be the best.

“Next month, all residents will be sent a letter explaining the new service arrangements and a printed calendar with their collection dates shown up until 2017.

“In the meantime, you can go to the Sefton Council website where you can find collection dates, the opening times of the local recycling centres and details of what goes in the different bins.”
