Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority

We are the public body responsible for dealing with household waste once it’s been collected from your home.

Using the latest technologies we aim to make sure as much waste as possible is sustainably managed. Our new Energy from Waste facility at Wilton in Teeside will divert from landfill over 92% of Merseyside’s non-recycled waste – and in the process save more than £100m in current landfill disposal costs.

We work hard to persuade people to use less in the first place and, through our 14 Household Waste Recycling Centres, to recycle as much as they can. Together with our District Council partners we’re making steady progress. Last year, 41% of Merseyside’s household waste was re-used, recycled and composted. You can read more about our Sustainability, Accountability and Deliverability on the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority website.
