Parking Concerns and Bank Holiday Collections
Waste collection crews in Somerset are poised to distribute ‘please park carefully’ notes in solidarity with fire service colleagues this week.
Staff working for SWP will be putting the polite notices from the fire service on to the windscreens of the rising number of problem parkers
The cars are often legally parked, but parked in a way that makes it difficult for recycling and rubbish collections trucks to negotiate narrower streets. They have meant collection crews haven’t been able to make some recycling and rubbish collections – If recycling crews can’t get through, other emergency appliances won’t be able to either.
All recycling sites remain closed, while garden waste and bulky waste services are suspended. Collections on the next 2020 bank holiday – VE Day on Friday 8 May – will see pick-ups one day later on Saturday 9 May.
