Climate warning

Step up and live up to your years' long ambitious recycling pledge

LESS than a third of waste in Wirral is sent for recycling, leaving nearly 100,000 tonnes going to landfill or being burnt each year. In 2015, Wirral Council pledged to recycle more than 50% of household waste by 2020 but in 2021, it is actually recycling 5.5% less than it did in 2013. In 2021, 133,648 tonnes of household waste was collected in Wirral with only 42,691 tonnes, roughly 32% sent to be recycled, reused or composted. This is the equivalent of 280.6 kilograms of waste per person going to landfill or incineration every year and places Wirral 285th out of 338 councils in England for recycling rates.
