St Helens Borough recycles



Ever wondered what happens to your recycling in St Helens? We hope you enjoy our behind-the-scenes video showing you the journey your recycling takes from your home once it's collected to our local recycling facility. Thank you for recycling.

You can pick up your free food waste caddy liners from Wesley House Reception, Corporation Street, Monday to Friday 10am-2pm. You can also collect white and blue bags from here.


Recycling containers including the black box, blue bag, white/pink bag and food caddy are collected weekly. Check your collection day

New or replacement recycling containers are free of charge.

Please place your containers on the kerbside or at your collection point for 6:30am on your collection day. You can also check what goes in what bin

If we are unable to gain access or experience any transport difficulties, we will try to return the same day. Where this is not possible, we will collect the following day.
