St.Helens Council provides a trade (or commercial) waste collection service to help all business organisations including shops, colleges, schools, nursing homes and hospitals meet their responsibilities to dispose of waste as required by law.
We offer a quality service you can trust tailored to meet the needs of your business at affordable prices with no hidden costs. The service complies with all legislative requirements and is available 6 days a week (Monday to Saturday) with weekly collections or as often as you require with a range of different sized bins to suit your needs.
The charge for the service is determined by the type and number of containers used, plus the frequency of collections required. We work to meet the needs of our customers to help you manage the disposal of your waste. Our team can assist you in assessing the waste you generate and the number and type of containers you will require.
Trade waste bags may also be available for businesses in the town centre where there are no storage facilities for trade waste containers.
Please contact the Council via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and a competitive quote.

All businesses must provide a written description of the waste to the person who removes it. This is known as a waste transfer note and must be completed by both parties involved in the transfer, these notes should be retained for a period of 2 years. Your licenced waste management organisation will provide the waste transfer note for completion.
