Extra bins to beat Wirral freeze

Extra bin collection points have opened in Wirral because of the continuing icy conditions.

The council opened six sites last week following the suspension of bin collection services.

The sites were in Heswall, New Ferry, Brombourgh, Leasowe Common, West Kirby and Pensby.

Another four at Birkenhead, Greasby, Woodchurch and Liscard have now been added to that list. The sites will be open until Wednesday.

Householders can drop off waste from all types of bins.

Councillor Lesley Rennie, cabinet member for streetscene and transport services at Wirral Council, said: "We are doing everything we can to collect and dispose of people's rubbish but the extreme weather conditions are not letting up and we need people to work with us to get this sorted."
