COVID-19 Business Support Grants
There are two new business support grant schemes, to help certain local businesses within the rating system, deal with business impacts caused by the rise of Omicron in recent weeks.
SWT anticipate the closing date for applications to be mid-day on 14 February, however in the case of over-subscription the closing date may be brought forward.
Please click here for further information on these schemes.
“Recycle More is coming soon” information should be landing on doormats, containing the all-important calendar setting out collection days for the next 12 months. This week also sees the start of Bright Blue Bag deliveries. The bags are a pivotal part of the expanded collections being introduced by Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) from Monday 28 February.
With a 60-litre capacity, the Bright Blue Bags are tough, waterproof and washable.
Key features include:
A weighted base so they won’t blow away in the wind
A Velcro-fastened lid so contents won’t blow away
Easy to fold-down and store when not in use
The Bright Blue Bag is used to hold:
Plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays (rinsed and squashed/nested)
Tins and cans (rinsed and crushed if safe to do so)
It should take around two weeks for everyone to get their bag. As they are delivered, stickers will be stuck on recycling boxes making it clear what needs to go where once Recycle More starts.
No one should put their bag out for collection until their first Recycle More collection day – which is made clear in the leaflet calendar.
As well as the calendar, the “Coming soon” leaflet includes a simple “what goes where” guide to the new service.
We’re renewing our appeal to trace Robin, believed to be sleeping rough after leaving an address in Weston-super-Mare on 27 January.
He could be anywhere in the South West and officers are concerned for his welfare as he needs regular medication. Please check outbuildings and caravans to see if he has sought shelter.
Robin is 42 and described as white, about 6ft 6ins (2m) tall and of large build, with a shaved head.
He was wearing a black and white checked shirt, black trousers and trainers and had a grey hooded jumper with him.
Robin, if you see this, please contact your family or ring 101.
If you can help us trace him please get in touch.
If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5222022181, or complete our online appeals form.
