Sorry; missed recycling Wed24Feb

Wednesday 24 February 2021 – Coronavirus-related staff shortages have led to missed recycling collections today in and around Draycott, Rodney Stoke and Shepton Mallet in Mendip, Taunton in Somerset West and Taunton, and Yeovil in South Somerset.

List of affected roads below (if missed elsewhere, report as usual after 7pm on due day via My Waste Services at

We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next Wednesday, 3 March, from 6am.

(In addition, some homes whose recycling was missed late today in Wells and nearby, including the Horringtons, will have a return collection tomorrow Thursday from 6am.)

Rubbish, garden waste, clinical and bulky waste collections are NOT affected.

Expecting lots by next week? Flatten/tear up card; rinse, squash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and – if safe – crush cans. Stack boxes, heavier above, locked food bin on top.

Extra material can be carefully sorted into bags (not black sacks) beside your recycling, or store and put out over time.

If materials cannot be stored or present a health or fire risk, recyclesites – on usual schedules for essential visits – can take 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:

For an explanation of coronavirus safety measures for collection crews and the change to 6am starts until at least the end of March, see:
