Best place to find information and services that your council provides...


The council is now charging for the collection of your garden waste. There will be a charge of £32 per year for each green bin if you sign up online, or £37 if you sign up by phone with a debit/credit card.

Your subscription means that you’ll receive a fortnightly collection service between 3rd June 2019 and 31st May 2020. Once you’ve subscribed, we will send you a permit to stick on your green bin(s).

  • If you subscribe part way through the subscription year, the charge will remain at £32 if paid online and £37 if you sign up by phone. We’ll aim to start collecting your green bin within two weeks of your subscription. If you’ve ordered a replacement and/or additional bins, we’ll aim to deliver these to your property within two weeks.
  • If you move house part way through the subscription year, you will not be entitled to a refund. However, you will be able to transfer your subscription(s) to a new address in St Helens.

If you choose not to subscribe, your garden waste will no longer be collected.

Please provide a valid email address - this is required for your receipt of payment.

Subscriptions for 2019/20 opened on Thursday 9th May 2019.
