Summer Bank Holiday collections one day later

No collections on the Summer Bank Holiday Monday, 31 August, mean recycling and rubbish services are one day later all week, including Friday pick-ups on Saturday 5 September.

The changes affect collections of recycling, refuse and garden waste, as well as assisted collections.

Residents should sort and segregate materials, ensure no recycling – especially food – is in the rubbish bin, and put all waste containers out by 7am.

Recycling sites remain on their usual timetables, with all 16 open 9am-4pm on the bank holiday Saturday and Sunday weekend.

And 12 sites will be open 9am-6pm on Bank Holiday Monday: Bridgwater, Castle Cary, Chard, Cheddar, Crewkerne, Frome, Minehead, Street, Taunton, Wells, Williton, Yeovil.

All kerbside collections return to their usual schedules from Monday 7 September.
