Waste collections are changing

From the end of February these items will be added to the weekly recycling collections:

  • plastic pots, tubs and trays
  • food & drink cartons (Tetra Pak etc)
  • small household batteries
  • small electrical items (kettles etc)

A new recycling container – a Bright Blue Bag – is delivered to all homes.
With more being recycled, rubbish is collected every three weeks, not two.
Collection days will change for more than half of households.

Look out for further updates nearer the time.

We are running several out of hours Facebook “Q&A days” about Recycle More where we will field any questions about the new service.
They will run from 7am to 7pm. Please join in and promote them in your communities and with colleagues, family and friends.
To take part, just visit the Facebook page @somersetwaste and post questions as comments on the Q&A day’s post.

The Q&A dates are as follows:
• Monday 10 January
• Wednesday 26 January
• Friday 18 February
• Wednesday 16 March
