Recycling Service Change

What you need to know about the new service change.

Why have we decided to make these changes?

We have recently published our new Resource and Waste Strategy through to 2030 to help minimise and recycle more of our waste. This will help us mitigate the impacts of climate change and help us meet our ambitious target to be net zero carbon by 2040.

This included replacement blue and white bags and a new 73L green recycling bag for cardboard recycling to deal with the increased amount of card generated in St Helens and help us separate glass from card to maintain quality and help recycle as much of our waste as possible.

The change to collection days will make our collection rounds more efficient and help us reduce vehicle movements, reducing carbon emissions. It will also support growing collection areas in future years.
