Good Morning


Wirral Council thanks you for your request, please find information Waste
and Environment can provide to you in response to your queries as follows:


The Council has no approved plans for changes to its current kerbside
scheme. However, in order to meet our 2020 statutory requirements, it is
highly likely that a food waste collection service will be rolled out to
the majority of households. This is likely to occur around 2017, when the
current kerbside fleet of vehicles is due for replacement, providing the
opportunity to investigate co-collection of food waste on the same


This is likely to require caddies and/or containers for inside the
house. The Council will be intending to retain its co-mingled collection
service, although through TEEP it will examine the viability of
alternative options.


We trust you find this information of assistance


Kind regards


Sent on behalf of
