Staff shortages have led to missed recycling collections today Friday 19 February in and around Alford, Ansford, Castle Cary, Galhampton, Lovington, North Barrow, Charlton Horethorne, Corton Denham, Horsington, Milborne Port, Milborne Wick in South Somerset. 

List of affected roads below (if missed elsewhere, report as usual after 7pm on due day via My Waste Services at 

We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next Friday, 26 February from 6am. 

Rubbish, garden waste, clinical and bulky waste collections are NOT affected. 

For more recycling space, flatten and tear up card; rinse, quash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and - if safe - crush cans. Stack boxes with heavier above and locked food bin on top. 

If materials cannot be stored or would present a health or fire risk, all recyclesites are on their usual schedules for essential visits only, and can take all kerbside materials for recycling. 

The only exception is food waste, which should be double bagged and put in your rubbish, or added to the energy-from-waste skip at any recycling site. 

All recycle site details, including essential safety measures:
