    Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority intends to reopen all Household Waste Recycling Centres on Monday 4th May. Councillors on the Authority have decided to open with restrictions and subject to traffic management plans being in place for each site.

    The Authority is currently working with Council Highways Departments and the Police on their respective plans.

    MRWA along with its contractor Veolia will be implementing clear operating guidelines with respect to the necessity of visits, social distancing on site and queuing. Our priority at all times is the safety of residents and the hard working staff at all of our Centres.

    The restrictions will be:

    The number of vehicles allowed on site will be restricted, and queuing times will be significantly higher.

    Cars only

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

    No vans, commercial-type vehicles or large trailers.

    Social distancing of at least 2 metres will be strictly enforced.

    Site Employees will not be able to assist with unloading.

    Sites will be open 8.00 am – 8.00 pm every day.

    If households have had COVID-19 symptoms then waste should be left for at least 72 hours before disposal and personal waste should be safely double bagged. Place it in your normal bin collection if you can.

    Both the Liverpool City Region Mayor, Steve Rotheram and the Liverpool City Council Mayor, Joe Anderson support the decision taken to reopen the sites.

    Steve Rotheram said: “All leaders are supporting this decision. We recognise that the Waste Authority has to reopen the sites with safety as a priority, and we are urging residents to check the restrictions on the MRWA website and be prepared for very long waiting times.”

    Joe Anderson said: “I commend the decision to open the sites with social distancing, we are doing this to avoid waste becoming a problem at home. Please only travel if it is essential and follow the instructions given to you by staff on site.”

    For more information please check MRWA’s website www.merseysidewda.gov.uk and social media @MerseysideRWA

    We’d like to thank all residents for their understanding and patience during this challenging time.

    Carl Beer, Chief Executive

    Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority

    So, let’s put poorly paid workers at risk of catching a highly contagious and possibly fatal disease because it’s too much to ask that you store your own crap on site for a few precious months in aid to help defeat this monster.

    Since it looks like central government seem to be encouraging councils to open tips, then I'm hoping the official advice gets altered to match.

    Otherwise telling people to stay home, but then encouraging domestic tips to open is a very mixed message.

    Surely you would accept that the staff at the recycling centre are at far less a risk than shop workers.

    Dealing with waste promptly is an important part of a civilised societies base functions.

    But at the moment, the opening of these waste reception sites to the publc is most definitely not essential. AWC is still going on - that deals with perishable waste so - any journeys to the sites to dispose of non perishable waste would be unnecessary.
    These journeys would increase the potential to pass on the disease, increase the amount of traffic on the road and so increase the potential for RTA's (the last thing the NHS needs now are legions of 'victims' holding their necks in casualty).
