Recycling sites update
From Monday 1 June, all 16 recycling sites will be returning to standard summer opening hours. Opening hours information will be updated on the Somerset Waste Partnership website from Monday morning.
For more information, see the attached press release and for the detail of which sites will be open when, please check the attached timetable. Note that for Frome, Taunton and Yeovil, this will mean a return to seven days a week opening.
From Monday, we will also be ending the odds and even number plate access system for all sites.
All other restrictions remain in place – no extra materials are being accepted compared to this week, max two people per household, wearing gloves, trailers and 3.5 tonne vans only between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays.
While this is a key step towards business as usual, we are avoiding making too many changes at once so we do not create an unmanageable or unsafe situation for residents or staff.
There will be further phases to get us back to as close to usual as possible.
We will continue to highlight that queues are to be expected due to the social distancing measures that are in place, and will remind people to turn off their engines if waiting, and that trips should only be made if they are really necessary.
