You can find your next bin collection date by putting your postcode into the online bin collection calendar.

Doing a spring clean?

Find your local recyling centre locations and opening times or consider donating any unwanted furniture to the Sefton Helping Hands furniture re-use service. This local charity redistributes quality items for the home to residents who are in need within Sefton.

Furniture must be in good repair and still have a label attached that states its compliance to fire retardant regulations (if upholstered).
