Catch-up collections after Glastonbury jam delays

UPDATE Thursday 23 June. Apologies: Glastonbury traffic jams have caused widespread disruption to collections well beyond the immediate festival area. Crews are working from 6am Thursday to collect waste missed on Wednesday as well as to make today’s usual collections. In case of delays, please leave uncollected containers out until late. If your collection due today is missed, please put containers out again by 7am tomorrow. If you have space, you may prefer to store missed materials until your next collection. If you have time and transport, you may prefer to take recycling and rubbish to a recycling site. All materials except food can be recycled at almost all recycling sites – check details here of what is collected where. These are the recycling sites open Thursday 8am-4pm: the Big5 of seven-day Bridgwater, Frome, Minehead, Taunton and Yeovil, plus five-day Chard, Highbridge, Somerton and Wells.

Please continue to present your recycling and waste collections as usual during the Glastonbury Festival.

Once initial traffic issues are cleared, our collection crews will be given access to the villages near the festival site so collections are planned as usual, including refuse, recycling, garden waste, clinical and assisted collections.

Please be aware that collection times may vary due to additional traffic causing delays or parked vehicles causing obstructions.  Please ensure ALL waste, and recycling is at the kerbside by 7am.
