Recycle your Christmas waste

Wirral Globe: Recycle your Christmas waste Recycle your Christmas waste

WASTE officers are asking Wirral people to recycle as much as possible this Christmas and New Year.

Tonnes of rubbish can tend to be generated at this time of the year, so local householders are being asked to remember to recycle their cans, bottles, cardboard and real Christmas trees after the festive period.

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authorit is reminding local people that the region’s 14 household waste recycling centres are open most days, where all sorts of leftovers can be recycled for free.

Councillor Joe DeAsha, chairman of MRWA, said: “A lot of waste is created at this time of the year so it’s a good chance to boost Merseyside’s recycling levels.

"Our recycling centres will happily accept the clutter of people’s packaging, bottles, cans and even Christmas trees.”

The borough's three centres are at Bidston Moss, Wallasey Bridge Road, Birkenhead; Greenbank Road, West Kirby and Mount Road, Clatterbridge.

They are open every day of the year – except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – from 8am until 5pm during winter.

Many items can be deposited, with the majority accepting cans, cardboard, garden waste, glass jars and bottles, paper, scrap metal, textiles, timber, tyres and white goods. All accept electrical items.

Perhaps as a simple thought they could have another lane to recycle. At present you have to join the long line of traffic waiting so all the traffic waiting with running engines is not helping the environment what so ever and it should be quicker and simpler just to get rid of the tons of cardboard that we will all have to get rid of for the next 7 days.

Al, its not just the line to queue at Bidston, it is the lack of somewhere to park up at the top end and then dodging cars as you go from one bin to the next trying to find the right skip to put your stuff in. I prefer Clatterbridge myself as it is a lot easier to get to, and a lot faster to get around as well with always smaller queues.

WBC asking us to recycle our rubbish – isn’t that exactly what residents would like to do, but where would we find a receptacle large enough!
