Don't Waste Your Say

There are now less than two weeks left for residents to have their say on the way that waste collection and disposal is managed across Merseyside.

One of the key objectives is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

Issues up for debate include plans to stop collecting any black sacks left alongside wheelie bins, and local councils joining forces to collect waste. Sefton already carries out some of the proposals, such as alternate weekly collection and food waste collection.

Once the Merseyside Waste Strategy has been agreed, it will be up to each local council to decide how to implement it in their area.

The consultation closes on 26th August.
