Sorry; missed recycling Friday 26 February

Friday 26 February 2021 – Staff shortages due to coronavirus safety measures and other issues have led to missed recycling collections today from some streets in and around these locations:

  • Chilcompton, Coleford, Draycott, Holcombe, Leigh On Mendip, Mells, Newbury and Stoke St Michael in Mendip
  • Staplegrove, Taunton, in Somerset West and Taunton
  • Babcary, Brewham, Charlton Adam, Charlton Musgrove, Cole, Foddington, North Barrow, North Cadbury, Queen Camel, South Barrow, South Cadbury, Sparkford, Sutton Montis and Weston Bampfylde in South Somerset

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

We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next Friday, March 5, from 6am.

Rubbish, garden waste, clinical and bulky waste collections are NOT affected.

Lots to go? Flatten/tear up card; rinse, quash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and – if safe – crush cans. Stack boxes, heavier above, locked food bin on top.

Extra material can be carefully sorted into bags (not black sacks) beside your recycling, or store and put out over time.

If materials cannot be stored or present a health or fire risk, recyclesites – on usual schedules for essential visits – can take 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:
