Following discussions that continued throughout the Christmas holiday period between Biffa and Wirral Council, an agreement was reached between Biffa and their workforce and planned industrial action was called off.  As a result, the workforce returned to work on Wednesday 28 December 2022 and household bin collections are now taking place. 

From Monday 2 January 2023, normal scheduled household bin collections will be taking place across Wirral (both green and grey bins). Please put your bin out for collection on your normal scheduled day (ie, the day your bin was always collected before the industrial action) and crews will empty them as soon as possible.

Scheduled bin collections 2-6 January

  • All normal collections are now taking place.
  • If your scheduled grey bin has been missed today (Wednesday 4 January) please leave your grey bin out and they will be collected tomorrow before the crew moves on to Thursday 5 January collection rounds.

Catch up collections

  • If your GREEN bin was due for collection on Monday 26 December, crews are still catching up, if your bin has not been collected please leave your green bin out for collection crews they will return on Thursday 5 January.
