Wednesday 28 October update: Due to a high volume of waste and Covid-related absences in staff, there has been a delay to green and grey bin collections this week. Crews are working hard to make all collections by the end of the weekend.
If your bin hasn't been emptied on its usual day, please take it in and put it back out by 7am the following day.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused and we thank you for your patience at this difficult time.
Any used fireworks should be placed in to a bucket of cold water overnight to ensure they are completely extinguished before disposing in your green bin. Always follow the Firework code
Wirral Council and Biffa have been working hard to put measures in place to keep bin collection crews as safe as possible while carrying out their duties. To help us do this please:
follow the social distancing guidelines
ensure all waste is contained in your bins with the lid closed and no waste is loose at a collection point
anyone who feels ill at home (whether diagnosed with COVID-19 or not) should place all their waste in the general rubbish bin, and should double-bag it, making sure the bags are securely tied. Wait at least 72 hours before placing it out for collection. This material should not be put in your recycling.
