Merseyside Waste collections suspended over winter and festive period

HOUSEHOLDERS in Liverpool are being reminded not to leave their green bins out for collection between 5 December 2016 and 26 February 2017. The green waste collection service is being suspended, but there will still be a number of collection points for Christmas trees throughout the City after the festive period. For all information on Purple and blue bin collections see:- Liverpool.Gov.UK. Liverpool Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said:- "We know there is a low demand for these services over the winter, and this is something we have done for the last few years. We can make better use of our crews carrying out other tasks which are needed and dealing with the waste and recycling collections over the Christmas and New Year period effectively. We have placed stickers on all bins to notify people about the arrangements."

On the Wirral if you are scheduled for a collection, on Monday, 26 December 2016, your bin will be collected, on Saturday, 24 December 2016. All other collections over the Christmas period will take place as normal. But please remember that there will be no garden waste collections over the Christmas and New Year period. The last collection will be 16 December 2016 and re-start on your scheduled collection day from 17 January 2017 onwards.

For Knowsley area, there will be no blue bin (garden waste) collections, between Monday, 28 November 2016 and Friday, 3 March 2017. Green waste can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centres at Huyton or Kirkby during this time. Shredded paper can be stored in the blue bin over the winter period.
