They also accept bulky items such as furniture and white goods (e.g. fridges and freezers).

Residents using vans or trailers between 2 – 3 metres (external box dimensions) need to book an appointment to visit the Recycling Centres. Those using a van of any size or a large trailer are allowed a maximum of 12 visits over the year to recycle and dispose of household waste (this includes green and garden waste). Please note: residents using a standard car do NOT need to make a booking to use the Recycling Centres unless you intend to visit with a trailer between 2 – 3 metres (external box dimensions) in length.
How to book
Making an appointment is easy and free of charge. Simply book online or ring 07774 787340 / 07774 787370.
Asbestos booking system
A free disposal service by appointment only is provided at Huyton Household Recycling Centre to residents disposing of cement bonded asbestos products. If you use a contractor to remove your waste, this is classed as trade waste and it will not be accepted at the site. Your contractor will be responsible for disposing of this waste.
