The Household Waste Recycling Centres (tips) in Huyton and Kirkby are set to switch to their shorter winter opening hours from 1 October.
The recycling centres at Wilson Road, Huyton and Depot Road, Kirkby will open from 8am to 5pm during the winter months (instead of 8am to 8pm in the summer months).
Recycling Centres 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 food (e.g Pringles) and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items. Householders can check www.merseysidewda.gov.uk for details of what can be accepted at their local site.
The Centres provide a popular service for residents and can become extremely busy at peak times so visits should be planned carefully.
There is a system in place for those who wish to visit a HWRC in a van or with a large trailer. Bookings can be made at www.merseysidewda.gov.uk.
More information on what you can do with your household waste items can be found at www.recycleright.org.uk.
