No doubt, like me many households will have accrued lots of extra waste over the last couple of days and now have bulging grey and green bins. And unfortunately because of the icy conditions bin crews cant get out into many of the areas particularly on estates where the road conditions are treacherous. But don’t despair, following the successful temporary bin collection points at six sites in Wirral this week the Council has decided to roll out an extra four sites across the borough. Ten sites will be available for people to use from Monday until at least Wednesday with extended opening hours (9am -2.30pm) – and wagons taking waste from both grey and green bins.
The collection points have been set up to enable people to get rid of their rubbish while bin collections are suspended because of the icy road conditions. The new sites can be found at:
Quarrybank Road car park Birkenhead, Coronation Park, Greasby, Woodchurch Leisure Centre, Seaview Road, Liscard (car park opposite Fairview Avenue), They are in addition to the existing sites at: Pye Road car park, Heswall, Woodhead Street car park, New Ferry, Allport Lane car park, Bromborough, Leasowe Common car park (where Pasture Road meets Leasowe Road), Dee Lane car park, West Kirby, Fishers Lane, Pensby (by the community centre).
(The opening of all sites is weather dependent – please check www.wirral.gov.uk for the latest information). Biffa crews will also empty bins from blocks of flats and homes on some primary routes.
