Recycling and Refuse Bin and Container Ordering
You can now recycle your food waste at home.
To help boost recycling rates we are going to collect food waste weekly alongside the rest of your recycling.
You can order a FREE kitchen and kerbside caddy, along with bio-degradable bags to line the caddy.
You can put any raw or cooked food into your kitchen caddy - from scraps and peelings to leftovers and out-of-date items.
When it's full, the food waste in the kitchen caddy can be transferred to the kerbside caddy.
Ordering Bins and Recycling Containers
If you haven't got any recycling containers, please call 01744 676789 or order online.
The service is going WEEKLY so it's important to remember that there will be twice as much space in your containers.
People living in St. Helens can order recycling bags, boxes and food caddies online and also request repairs or pickups of damaged or unwanted bins via the same online ordering system.
To order a brown or green wheelie bin please telephone the Contact Centre on 01744 676789. There is a charge of £17.50 for new or replacement brown bin and they cannot currently be ordered online. We aim to introduce online payments for bins in the next few months.
