[OFFICIAL] - Message from SWP about missed collections


SWP are reporting staff shortages due to illness, self-isolation etc.  This is in case you get any queries from your ward residents.   SWP are unable to return for missed collections.  Please see what to advise residents below.  Thank you.


Coronavirus-related staff shortages have led to missed recycling collections  Thursday 11 February in Sedgemoor villages.

List of affected roads below (if missed elsewhere, report 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 week, Thursday 18 February, from 6am.

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

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.
