Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA)

The Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) are the public body responsible for dealing with household waste and recycling 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 Energy from Waste facility in Wilton diverts over 92% of Merseyside’s non-recycled waste from landfill – and in the process saves more than £100m in current landfill disposal costs over the life of its contract.

We work hard to persuade Merseyside’s householders to use less in the first place and, through our 14 Household Waste Recycling Centres and District Council kerbside collections, to recycle as much as they can. Together with our Council partners we’re making steady progress. Last year, 43% 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 in the related links area of this page.
