New name for Merseyside waste authority

The Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority is changing its name to emphasise its focus on sustainable waste management.

The municipal waste management authority will now be known as Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority.

The authority’s chair, Cllr Joe De Asha, said the change reflected the changing nature of waste management and the transition to a low carbon economy, “moving away from purely disposal of waste and changing to one which better reflects the resources management and recycling functions that the organisation now undertakes”.

The new name was approved by councillors in November and will be rolled out in phases beginning with digital media.
