Waste and recycling collections spring forward for bank holiday

Somerset Council is reminding residents that with the late spring bank holiday around the corner there will be a change to household waste collection days.

Crews will be collecting all waste a day later during week beginning Monday 29 May. This includes recycling, refuse and garden collections.

If your recycling and/or refuse is usually collected on a Monday, then it will be collected on a Tuesday, if your usual day is a Tuesday it will be collected on a Wednesday and so on. That includes collections that would usually take place on Friday 2 June taking place on Saturday 3 June.

To help crews speed up collections, please present boxes, bags and bins by 7am on the day of collection, or the night before.

With waste collections a day later a higher volume of waste is likely. Squashing, crushing and flattening waste can help to reduce the number of trips that teams need to make to empty their trucks, as well as creating more space in resident's containers.

All 16 recycling sites will be open as usual at weekends, 9am to 4pm. And, if opening Mondays is part of their normal opening pattern, they will be open on Bank Holiday Monday (29 May), from 9am to 6pm. For opening times and to find a full list of what can be recycled please visit: www.somerset.gov.uk/recycling-collections
