No yolk: your Easter days and waste

No yolk: your Easter days and waste

Thanks to the new Recycle More service, most Easter egg packaging can be recycled kerbside or at any recycle site. Flatten card and put it in your black recycle box, scrunch aluminium foil and add to the Bright Blue Bag with clear plastic egg moulds . Also check if any ribbons, bells, baskets, tags or Easter egg “free” gifts – mugs, toys and so on – can be recycled.

Sweet and chocolate bar wrappers, plastic bags and plastic-foil pouches, and similar thin-soft plastics cannot yet be recycled kerbside or at recycle sites but most of these can go to Co-op, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets.

See the plastics guide: somersetwaste.gov.uk/act-on- plastics.

As usual, Easter means changes to waste days. Good Friday 15 April pick-ups move to Saturday 16 April, and with no collections Easter Monday 18 April, all Easter week pick-ups are one day later, including Friday collections on Saturday 23 April. And note that bank holiday Monday May 2 means all that week’s collections are a day later, including Friday pick-ups on Saturday 7 May.
