One day closure for Yeovil and Chard recycling sites

30 January, 2021 – Yeovil and Chard recycling sites are closed for one day today (Saturday 30 Jan) , following a positive COVID test.

Staff from both sites are self-isolating and seeking tests. The sites are being deep cleaned. We expect them to reopen tomorrow (Sunday) 9am-4pm, staffed by colleagues from other recycling centres.

Throughout the pandemic we and our contractor Viridor have closely followed all the relevant guidance and have continuity plans which are now putting into action.

Sites are open for essential visits only at present – when waste cannot be taken from the kerbside and poses a health or fire risk if stored at home – and there are a range of measures are in place at all sites for the protection of staff and public https://www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/allatall/
