The current 2019/20 subscription was due to end on Friday 29 May, but has been extended until Friday 28 August to make up for the collections missed while the service was suspended.
Councillor Andy Bowden, Labour’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, says: “I’m pleased we’ve now been able to restart weekly recycling collections, as well as bulky rubbish collections too. And now we can bring back green bin collections.
Council staff have worked tirelessly to keep brown bin collections going throughout lockdown, and we thank them all for their hard work. I also want to thank residents for their patience and understanding.”
To find out your collection dates, visit www.sthelens.gov.uk/collections and enter your postcode and house number.
The new 2020/21 subscription period will then start on Monday 31 August.
Residents don’t need to renew or subscribe for the 2020/21 period at this time, and no payment will be taken. Full details about the 2020/21 subscription will follow soon.
The service was suspended in March due to Covid-19 to prioritise staff resources around household waste and clinical collections.
