Sorry; missed recycling Tuesday 9 February

Tuesday 9 February – Sorry; missed recycling around Yeovil, Keinton Mandeville and Barton St David today Tuesday 9 February

Coronavirus-related staff shortages have led to missed recycling collections today Tuesday in parts of Yeovil, Keinton Mandeville and Barton St David. List of affected roads below (if not on this list, report any missed collection as usual after 7pm on due day via My Waste services at somersetwaste.gov.uk).

We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next Tuesday, 16 February, by 6am.

For more recycling space, flatten and tear up card; rinse, quash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and – if safe – crush cans. Stack boxes locked food bin on top.

If materials cannot be stored or would present a health or fire risk, all recyclesites are on their usual schedules for essential visits only, and can take all 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: somersetwaste.gov.uk/allatall/

Recycling checklist: somersetwaste.gov.uk/recycling-collections/

If you need extra recycling containers, order them via My Waste Services at somersetwaste.gov.uk

Please observe all coronavirus safety advice for kerbside collections, including washing/sanitising hands before and after handing waste containers, disinfecting handles, and maintaining social distance from waste staff.

For an explanation of coronavirus safety measures for collection crews and this month’s change to 6am starts, see: facebook.com/SomersetWaste/posts/3741870462515672

Apologies, Somerset Waste Partnership
