Recycling and waste collections over Early May Bank Holiday in St Helens Borough

Article date - 29 April 2021

With the Early May Bank Holiday (Monday 3 May) and a long weekend to look forward to, there’s always that little bit of confusion in households about recycling and waste collections.

But there’s no need to anxiously wait to see which bins your neighbours are putting out.

Collection crews will be working as normal on the bank holiday, so there will be no change to collections that week.

If you’re still unsure, the easiest way to check your collection dates is to enter your postcode online at www.sthelens.gov.uk/collections.

Please have your recycling and waste out for collection from 6:30am.

Residents are advised that due to the expected increase in recycling tonnage some recycling collections may be done via a normal rear-loading bin wagon, with comingled recyclables sent on for sorting and recycling. In this event food waste will be collected separately.

Please also be mindful of parking in your street. With so many of us at home, please be considerate and avoid double-parking to ensure that collection vehicles, as well as emergency services, can reach every house unobstructed.
