NOTICEBOARD

Summer hours at recycle sites from 1 April

All of Somerset’s 16 recycling sites switch to their summer timetables from Thursday 1 April – but for essential journeys only to start with.

When open weekdays, they will continue to start at 9am but close an hour later, at 6pm. Year-round Saturday and Sunday hours remain 9am-4pm at all 16 sites.

In line with government guidance, Somerset Waste Partnership is still advising residents to only make trips if they really have to, for example because waste at home is causing some kind of risk.

This advice will be reviewed as part of the national lifting of lockdown restrictions but will not change until 12 April at the earliest. On-site safety precautions continue including social distancing, no staff assistance with unloading, gloves must be worn.

Members of the public are asked to consider wearing a mask.

Please check government restrictions on travel and Somerset Waste Partnership safety measures before making a visit somersetwaste.gov.uk/allatall/

Latest site details including opening days can be found at somersetwaste.gov.uk/recycling/centres

With an impressive average recycling rate of well over 75%, Somerset’s recycle site network is open every day of the year except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day to take dozens of materials.

Winter hours – 9am-5pm when sites are open weekdays – resume on Friday 1 October 2021.

To keep up to date with waste services, sign up for the SWP e-newsletter at somersetwaste.gov.uk or follow somersetwaste on Facebook or Twitter.
