Sefton Council recycling schedule over Christmas & New Year

Refuse and recycling collection days in Sefton will not change over Christmas and the New Year for most residents.

Residents are asked to put their refuse and recycling out on their scheduled days as normal over the festive period.

Similar to other years, the green wheelie bin collection for garden waste is now suspended until 2017 and to check any of your collection dates please visit the Sefton Council website.

Cllr John Fairclough, Cabinet Member Locality Services, said: “I am sure most people will be delighted that there are no changes to refuse and recycling collections over Christmas and the New Year.

“Anyone who may be affected with a slight change in collections, like commercial waste, has been notified directly.

“Please remember that during and after the Christmas period we all tend to generate extra waste yet so much of this can be recycled. As ever please think about recycling more rather than just putting it in the grey bin and make your Christmas an even greener one.”
