Recycling is the way forward for Rainhill.
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.

Deepdale Drive area goes green.
Rainhill Parish Council have agreed to part fund a tree planting project in the Deepdale Drive area. Alongside the Tree Council funding, about 130 trees will find new homes with the generous help of enthusiastic pupils from Rainhill High School. The £659 project is one of a number of local tree planting partnerships being undertaken locally.
The AGM is being held tonight at Rainhill Labour Club from 7.30pm.
