What goes in what bin?
You can pop to any library and pick up your caddy liners but be quick because once they are gone they are gone!
Together at St Helens Borough Council we can get our recycling right.
Please make sure you put the correct items in your containers - the guide below will help you. Sometimes the wrong thing ends up in the incorrect container; this will contaminate it, and can result in your recycling not being taken on your collection day. You can order containers online.
What you do really makes a difference. We have come a long way way but there is still room to grow. Thank you for taking part!
