To date SHG have issued 1300 wheelie bins for Island households, 36 communal bins for domestic waste and around 330 wheelie bins for commercial use. St Helena Waste Management Services (WMS) retains 40 blue wheelie bins for recycling use and deployment at Island events.

The public and commercial businesses are advised that WMS has exhausted their supply of wheelie bins for households and commercial use, and WMS now recommends that all new build homes and businesses procure their own wheelie bins, compatible with the Island’s Refuse Collection Vehicles.

Householders and commercial businesses are further advised that bagged waste must be suited for wheelie bins in order to be safely collected for disposal. Recipients of SHG issued bins are also reminded that if a bin is lost or damaged, replacement of the bin is their responsibility and not SHG’s.
