Deal with your refuse and recycling the right way

Published: 14 April 2020

Here’s some important advice about how to dispose of your household waste the right way during coronavirus lockdown.

Please compost your garden waste

All green bin collections are suspended until further notice so that Liverpool City Council can prioritise household waste, recycling and clinical collections. Where possible, please compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings.

Got an old broken piece of wooden furniture? You can recycle the materials and build your own composting bin in your garden. For a great how-to guide check out the Gardeners’ World website

Are you self isolating? Please double bag your personal waste

Personal waste, such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored in a plastic rubbish bag and tied securely. These bags should then be placed into a second bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste in the room. Keep aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual external household waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

Thinking of a spring sort out? Think again

Recycling centres throughout Liverpool are closed until further notice and Bulky Bob’s collection service is also not operating. This means you might need to rethink that spring clear-out that you’ve been planning. If you do have any large items of furniture that are broken, you will need to store them carefully until recycling services are restored.

We’re working closely with Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service to monitor illegal fly tipping so please help us keep our communities clean, tidy and healthy by disposing of your waste in the right way.
