Ordering Bins and Recycling Containers

If you haven't got any recycling containers, please call 01744 676789 or order online. Recycling containers are free of charge; however, please note there is a charge of £25.00 for new or replacement brown or green bins.

Each household/property is entitled to one brown bin and one green bin. The Council charges for the collection of garden waste. You will need to subscribe to the service for the bin to be emptied (the cost of the service is £12 per bin for collections between 31st August 2020 and 4th December 2020). 

People living in St Helens can order bins, recycling bags, boxes and food caddies online and also request repairs or pick-ups of damaged or unwanted bins via the same on-line ordering system.

To obtain replacement food caddy bags, please tie a food bag to the handle of the kerbside caddy before putting it out for collection and the crew will leave a roll of bags.

Alternatively, they can be collected from the Contact Centre at Wesley House.

  • Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for the delivery of recycling containers, and up to 3 weeks for wheelie bins.

Whilst waiting for delivery of a Brown wheelie bin, please ensure that any rubbish is securely tied in a bin bag, with a label attached to say that you are awaiting delivery of your bin.
