Recycling & Refuse Collections Bank Holiday Changes
Garden waste collections will not take place Monday 25 December – Friday 5 January, resuming from Monday 8 January 2018 on usual days.
Decoration-free natural Christmas trees under 6ft should be composted: Take to your local recycling site or, if you pay for garden waste collections, put them out on your usual garden waste collection day from 8 January. (As a very last resort you can send your tree for landfill burial. Place next to your refuse bin on your usual collection day between 8 - 19 January 2017).
Recycling centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Open all other days on their usual schedule. Vehicle permit conditions apply as usual over the festive season. All recycling sites accept only debit or credit card payments for disposal of soil, hardcore, tyres, gas bottles, vehicle parts and commercial waste, and to purchase Revive compost. Asbestos and plasterboard disposal is by online pre-payment. Crewkerne and Dulverton community recycling sites’ £2 entry fees are by cash.
