Knowsley residents can recycle more from Monday 1 April as the Household Waste Recycling Centres in Huyton and Kirkby open for an extra three hours every day.
The Recycling Centres at Wilson Road, Huyton L36 6AD and Depot Road Kirkby L33 3AR will be switching to their summer opening hours, meaning they’ll be open from 8am until 8pm, seven days a week.
The centres, provided by Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) and operated by resource management company Veolia, accept all sorts 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 coffee cups, clothes, furniture and electrical items.
If you’re planning to visit a Recycling Centre in a van or with a long trailer then you will need a permit to get in. Permits can be obtained free of charge by calling 0151 236 0305 or visiting www.merseysidewda.gov.uk.
The Recycling Centres are open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
