Recycling and rubbish collection days will be changing for more than 120,000 homes in Somerset in February next year.
The changes come as new collection routes are introduced by Somerset Council's contractor, SUEZ. The new routes will make rounds more efficient, more manageable for crews whilst reducing mileage and carbon emissions. The changes come at no cost to the council.
In February 2024, recycling and rubbish collection day schedules will change for around 85% of homes in the west of the county, covering the former Sedgemoor and Somerset West and Taunton areas, as well as a small part of South Somerset.
"We're writing to every household that will have a change to their collection day. Please keep an eye out for your letter in the New Year. If you don't receive a letter this means that your day is staying the same."
