West Kirby tip to close in October for improvement work

By Paul Johnston at

West Kirby Recycling Centre is closing for two weeks at the start of October to undergo essential maintenance and improvements.

The temporary closure of the Greenbank Road facility is to undertake repairs and reconstruction of the road surface, upgrade signage, lay road markings and improve staff facilities.

It means residents planning an autumn clear out of their home, garden or garage will have to use alternative facilities at Clatterbridge (Mount Road, CH63 4JZ) or Bidston (Wallasey Bridge Road, CH41 1EB).

Alternative recycling facilities are available at Clatterbridge

Cllr Tony Concepcion, MRWA Chairperson, said: “West Kirby receives approximately 1000 tonnes of material a month from local residents. Due to this demand on the facility essential maintenance is required to ensure the Recycling Centre remains safe for customers and employees.

“We’re also taking this opportunity to thoroughly check all aspects of the site, undertake any repairs, repaint, review signage and ensure that the site adheres to the high standard required of a public facility.

“We’d encourage residents to use an alternative Recycling Centre, or hold on until West Kirby re-opens.”

The site will re-open on Monday 15 October.
