Service update

Service update

We apologise for the disruption to our waste collections in recent weeks. The nationwide shortage of drivers and rising Covid self-isolations are the big issues. We are working hard to get things back on track but there are no quick fixes and disruption will continue for some times.

Please bear with us. Our crews are working very hard, as they have throughout the pandemic.

As of Monday 2 August garden waste collections will be suspended for six weeks. All subscribers will automatically have their subscriptions extended by eight weeks. Further details here www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/gardenwaste-suspension

If your recycling collection is missed, you can find some ideas on how to manage your recycling here What to do with recycling if your collection is delayed – Somerset Waste Partnership

Due to the continued staff pressures, any missed recycling collections will not be returned for until the next scheduled collection day.

No-one should be missed twice in a row and we have system to stop that happening. If it does happen, please report it (online using My Waste Services) and crews should be back within two working days.

Missed rubbish and garden waste collections should always be returned for within two working days. Please report them online.
