MWDA HWRC entrance improvement could boost recycling

Site access changes at the Bidston recycling facility in Merseyside, costing £100,000, will begin next week (12 January).

Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority, which manages the site, hopes the changes will give recycling rates a boost by providing greater working efficiency.

A second access point will be built by an MWDA appointed contractor to create separate entry and exit roads from Wallasey Bridge Road.Bidston site improvement works in Merseyside

MWDA director Carl Beer said: A more efficient site entrance will bring greater ease and speed of movement for all vehicles accessing the waste facilities. Hopefully this will result in more processing of waste and recyclable materials, which could result in higher recycling figures for Merseyside.

It will also provide a safer route because it will separate public traffic from the larger vehicles serving our operational facility.

A community wood, regenerated from a former landfill site, is also accessible from the recycling park. MWDA has plans to build a shared pedestrian and cyclist path to the woodland. Currently, visitors can only get to the woodland and waste facility through one entrance.

The household waste recycling centre is expected to remain open throughout the works which are due to finish in March.
