Get ready for Recycle More!

Get ready for Recycle More!

Somerset Waste Partnership is getting ready to bring Recycle More to
Sedgemoor and West Somerset and wants residents to prepare, too.

The new service is changing the way the county recycles, and it is coming
to households in the area early in the New Year.
It is already working in Mendip, South Somerset and Taunton Deane,
delivering hundreds of tonnes of extra recycling every week reducing
waste, protecting your environment and helping tackle climate change.

You will be able to recycle plastic pots, tubs and trays, cartons (such as
Tetra Pak), small household batteries and small electrical items (like irons
or toasters, laptops or phones) from the kerbside every week, along with
everything you can recycle already.

As it will be easier to recycle more, there will be less rubbish, so rubbish
bins and bags are collected every three weeks instead of every two.

Collection days will change for some, and everyone will need to put
recycling into different recycling containers, including a new Bright Blue
Bag delivered to all homes a week or two before the service starts.

Nothing changes until you receive your Bright Blue Bag!

SWP will write to everyone twice before Recycle More starts, with details of
what is changing and when. Look out for the leaflets and keep hold of them.

Now is the time to start preparing. Ensure you are making full use of the
weekly recycling collections. New or replacement recycling containers,
including food waste bins, can be ordered for FREE using the My Waste
Services feature at www.somersetwaste.gov.uk or by calling your district

www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/recycle more for information.

Most people in Somerset are recycling. This new service makes it easier for
everyone to do even more. Yet more than half the contents of the average
rubbish bin could have been recycled using the existing services.
