St Helens follows our lead...!!!
Following our long and concerted campaign over recycling issues, the council has relented and now plans to extend plastic bottle recycling to THE WHOLE OF THE BOROUGH from April this year. The St Helens Council have also had to backtrack over the GREEN BINS issue as well.
After arguing against us that there was no capacity to issue more green bins, they have reluctantly agreed to supply a further 5000 to residents who want to help with the recycling campaign. Residents will also be able to request a second black box for glass and metal containers.
Cllr Mike Doyle, who has lead the campaign, said “We told them what the residents wanted, they had to listen finally”.
