Recycling is the way forward for Rainhill. Posted by Hello

Green Waste Recycling.

St Helens Council is committed into extending their recycling initiatives, and are going to extend their distribution of "Green Bins" for garden waste and cardboard once the funding has been found. Mike Doyle, Joe DeAsha and Steve Glover have been at the forefront of the campaign to deliver these green bins to the residents of Rainhill. We have shown that there are pockets within the village that could contribute substantially to the growing recycle figures.

We are confident that council officers have accepted our case and will give a "Green Commitment" to the village residents. We will, of course, post further updates when they are available.

Rainhill Gardeners Challenge

St Helens Council are looking at the possibility of local people taking on their own "Civic Pride" team at the next St Helens Show in July this year. Individuals, Community Groups and Businesses could test their horticultural expertise against the experts, and display their creations to over 300,000 visitors over the three day show.

The council are asking for a register of interest to see if the "challenge" is possible. Contact the Marketing Services team on 01744 456864 and win the competition for Rainhill.
