Sefton Tips opening times for Christmas and New Year

Household waste recycling centres across Sefton Borough.

Along with its contractor Veolia, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority is implementing clear operating guidelines to ensure the safety of users and hard-working staff.

Traffic management plans are in place and the following restrictions apply at all sites:

  • sites are open 8.00 am – 8.00 pm every day.

  • the number of vehicles allowed on site at any one time is limited, which means queuing times will be significantly longer.

  • cars only – no vans, commercial-type vehicles or large trailers.

  • one person per vehicle (NB. Blue Badge holders will be able to be accompanied by one family member).

  • social distancing of at least 2 metres is being strictly enforced.

  • site employees cannot be able to assist with unloading.

An appointment system is in place at all Merseyside’s Household Waste Recycling Centres for people using vehicles such as vans or large trailers.

How to find the sites
