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

From Wednesday 1 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 4 Household Waste Recycling Centres in Sefton which are operated by Veolia Environmental Services on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA). They are located at Altcar Road, Formby, Sefton Lane, Maghull, Foul Lane, Southport and Irlam Road, Bootle.

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.”
