Snow update: Refuse collections to resume at 11am

Refuse and recycling collections will resume at 11am today, after they were cancelled earlier this morning due to snow. If your bin is due to be collected today, please present it as usual and we'll get to you as soon as we can. Crews will try to complete all of today’s scheduled work however there may be some work requiring completion tomorrow morning.

Police are advising that people allow plenty of time for journeys today. Our gritters were out last night but conditions are difficult underfoot and to drive in as the snow turns to slush.

We have been advised that some schools have closed for the day including Bedford Drive Primary School, Gilbrook School, Oxton St Saviours, Kingsway School, St Peter and Paul's School, Priory School, Birkenhead, and Liscard Primary School. Individual schools post details of their own school closures on their websites and share via social media, but we're happy to post details here also if you would like us to. Please email pressoffice@wirral.gov.uk. Details must be sent from the school's own email account. 

Transport to and from day centres and for pupils with special needs has also been cancelled today.
