Southport Waste Recycling Centre

Waste recycling centres in Southport, Formby, Bootle and Maghull will switch to shorter, winter opening hours from this Friday (1st October). 

From this Friday, the four recycling centres in Sefton will be open from 8am until 5pm – changing from the summer hours of 8am to 8pm.

Recycling centres accept a range of household materials for recycling, from batteries, cans and cardboard, through to garden clippings, glass bottles, wood, and white goods. They also accept lesser known items such as food (e.g. Pringles cans) and drink cartons, clothes, hard plastics and electrical items.

Householders can check for details of what can be accepted at their local site.

The centres provide a popular service for residents and can become extremely busy at peak times so visits should be planned carefully.

Sites in Sefton include:

Southport – Foul Lane, Scarisbrick New Road – PR9 7RG

Formby – Altcar Road, Formby – L37 8EG

South Sefton – Irlam Road, Bootle – L20 4AE

Sefton Meadows – Sefton Lane, Maghull – L31 8BX

There is a system in place for those who wish to visit a HWRC in a van or with a large trailer. Bookings can be made at
