Most of us recycle every day – and it’s just as important over the festive period. At Christmas, enough card packaging is used across the country to cover Big Ben over 260,000 times.
The recycling and waste collections will remain as per your calendar until Christmas. There will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.
The collection teams will be working on the three Saturdays following Christmas and your collection day will be different during this period. Stickers have been placed on brown bins with the revised collection dates and you can also check online by visiting www.sthelens.gov.uk/recycling
Please remember to have your waste ready for collection from 6:30am.
During this period, the team will be collecting black recycling boxes separately and all materials will be recycled.
