Residents have been reminded of changes to recycling and waste collections over the Christmas and New Year period.


Regular recycling and brown bin collections will still take place over the coming weeks, although there will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. This means dates have been altered for the majority of residents over the coming weeks.


Over the next fortnight, residents face delays of two to three days. From January 7, there will be one-day delays for all households. Collections will return to normal the week beginning Monday, January 14.


Stickers detailing the changes have been placed on all brown bins. Information can also be found online at sthelens.gov.uk/recycling
