Please be assured you will receive a collection of commercial general waste & recycling bins each week (Christmas and New Year weeks) where access is available, however, due to volume issues with the amount of waste presented this time of year - your recycling bin may be collected with your general waste bin on the same day during the holiday weeks only.

Commercial Recycling:

Sefton’s Commercial recycling collection service is available at a competitive rate to all trade customers that have a current contract with Sefton Council for the removal of their general waste.
