Missed recycling collections in South Somerset: Daily update (Thursday 11 February)

| Your Area South

Sorry; missed recycling in South Somerset

Coronavirus-related staff shortages have led to missed recycling collections today Thursday 11 February in Yeovil.   

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

We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next week, Thursday 18 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 locked food bin on top. 

If materials cannot be stored or would present a health or fire risk, all recycle sites 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: www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/allatall/

Recycling checklist:

If you need extra recycling containers, order them via My Waste Services at:

Please observe all coronavirus safety advice for kerbside collections, including washing/sanitising hands before and after handing waste containers, disinfecting handles, and maintaining social distance from waste staff.
