Free Community Recycling Centre available for Liverpool residents

Liverpool City Council's Community Recycling Centre provides residents with a free, environmentally friendly method for the disposal of problem household waste.

Mayor Wendy Waller encouraged residents who are unsure of how to dispose of unwanted household waste to consider using the centre.

"Recycling is a vital component of waste management and by using this facility residents are helping divert problem waste from landfill,” Mayor Waller said.

“The centre helps residents protect the local environment by taking their unwanted problem waste to a facility where they can be disposed of correctly.

"I thank the Liverpool community for supporting the centre and for their assistance in keeping our local environment clean so that future generations can benefit from what we do today."

The centre complements Council’s Household Chemical CleanOut events that are held throughout the year.

The February 2017 Chemical CleanOut was attended by 295 vehicles, with over 11,000kg of chemicals dropped off for environmentally-friendly recycling.

The next Chemical CleanOut will be held in August 2017.
