West Kirby Household Waste Recycling Centre will be open for an extra three hours every day from Thursday 1st April.

Centres will be switching to their summer opening hours until October, meaning most will be open from 8am until 8pm.

The 14 Recycling Centres situated throughout the region accept a range of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, wood, and white goods.

They also accept lesser known items such as takeaway food and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items.

Carl Beer, Chief Executive of MRWA, said: โ€œSocial distancing is still being enforced in England which means there are restrictions on all our sites for the safety and the health of both staff and visitors, hence there are only a certain number of cars allowed on site at any one time.

“All householders should follow site staff instructions if they do choose to visit any Recycling Centre. Sites are busy so we would ask anybody visiting to try and avoid the busy periods, especially Bank Holidays, if possible and be patient if they have to queue.

โ€œOur main message remains the same as it has done since we reopened in May – that people should visit their Recycling Centre only if it is essential. If waste can be disposed or recycled through kerbside collections, or if items can be reused or repurposed, then please do so.โ€
