The council is asking residents to help protect local bin collection crews by not leaving extra waste next to wheelie bins for collection.
Waste which isn’t left in the bin, poses a greater threat to staff as they have direct contact with the waste.
Although it's a difficult time with the tips closed and garden waste collections suspended, safety is the most important thing right now.
If you are producing more waste than usual because you have a large family staying at home, you can apply for a second green bin on the council website.
Alternatively, please have a think about how you can reduce your waste, either by recycling, composting or just holding onto waste that doesn’t require urgent collection, such as large cardboard boxes.
Keep an eye out on the Wirral View website and council social media accounts for composting top tips over the coming days and weeks.
