Bins and recycling

Find a recycling centre or tip

Household waste recycling centres are provided by Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA).

They accept a range of household materials, from batteries, cans and cardboard, to garden clippings, glass bottles and wood. You can also dispose of bulky items such as furniture and white goods (fridges, freezers etc). View the full list of materials accepted on the MWRA website.

Vans and trailers

An appointment system is in place at all sites if you are using commercial-type vehicles such as vans or trailers between 2 to 3 metres (external box dimensions).

Residents using a van of any size or a large trailer are allowed a maximum of 12 visits per year to recycle and dispose of household waste, including green and garden waste.

You do not need to book an appointment if using a standard car unless you are towing a trailer between 2 to 3 metres.

Visit the MRWA website to book an appointment online or call 07774 787340 or 07774 787370.
