RE­CY­CLING cen­tres in Sefton have switched to shorter win­ter open­ing hours.

As of Mon­day the they are open 8am-5pm – chang­ing from the sum­mer hours of 8am-8pm.

The re­cy­cling cen­tres are pro­vided by Mersey­side Re­cy­cling and Waste Author­ity (MRWA) and op­er­ated by re­source man­age­ment com­pany Ve­o­lia.

The Sefton Cen­tres are lo­cated at:

Formby – Alt­car Road, Formby.

Sefton Mead­ows – Sefton Lane, Maghull.

South­port – Foul Lane, Scarisbrick New Road.

South Sefton – Ir­lam Road, Boo­tle.

Carl Beer, chief ex­ec­u­tive of MRWA, said: “We shorten the hours over the win­ter to co­in­cide with the darker nights over the forth­com­ing months. “House­hold­ers can use the cen­tres to re­cy­cle a host of items – from cans, car bat­ter­ies and card­board to gar­den waste, large plas­tics, scrap me­tal, tex­tiles and tim­ber, and more.”

Any­one who is plan­ning to visit a re­cy­cling cen­tre in a van or with a long trailer will need a per­mit to get in.
