Recycling collections – We are concentrating staff on essential services. We cannot immediately return for missed recycling collections

One day later collections after VE Day – and free posters to colour in

One day later collections after VE Day – and free posters to colour in

The bank holiday for VE Day – marking the 75th anniversary of victory in Europe – on Friday 8 May will see no waste collections so those recycling and rubbish pick-ups will be on Saturday 9 May from 7am.

Collection crews are asking all residents to ensure their containers are out on time, with contents sorted, plastic bottles squashed, cardboard flattened, and – if safe – cans crushed.

To keep up to date with collections, recycling sites and the impact of COVID-19, sign up for the Somerset Waste Partnership e-newsletter here. And follow SWP on  Facebook and Twitter.

To mark VE Day, Prue Leith has created victory flapjacks –  download the free recipe here:

And there are free mini-posters for children to download and colour in – click on the link and save to print out:
