Claudia Tanner started this petition to Merseyside Recyling and Waste Authority

We are still having to queue for hours to drop off waste at the recycling centres/tips in Wirral and fly tipping has soared in the area.

While many areas have eased their restrictions, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority have said they have no date in mind. I've seen a few people post online they'be been told this won't change until after Christmas NEXT YEAR. We feel it's time they re-examined how it's operating.

The van permit scheme (for households) has been suspended throughout lockdown. Maybe you don't have a van and have a car, but this still impacts you as lifting the ban is logical for easing queues for everybody. 

MRWA say the idea behind banning vans is that you can't bring as much stuff so people are in and out quicker in cars. This is irrational, especially now. For example, I have a whole house to renovate. I need to dig up three tones of garden, I could take this to the tip in say four van runs, in a car it will take about 20 runs! I can't be the only person struggling with this. How many people are making more trips than they need to because they're not allowed to go in a small van, adding to the queues?

Down the road in Ellesmere Port they are allowing vans and you don't need a permit (for this you need proof of a Cheshire West and Chester postcode).

Yes we need social distancing for as long as required and the slowing down that causes is unavoidable. Let's not add to it unnecessarily. We don't want to see stuff continuing being dumped in our communities but that's what will happen if vans continued to be banned and we keep facing hours of queuing.

Please sign if you agree.
