Recycling sites to reopen, garden waste collections to restart. - FIND OUT MORE

Eleven recycling sites will reopen on Monday 11 May for essential visits only — in line with updated government guidance — and garden waste collections (see below) will resume from the same day.

To ensure social distancing, protect public and staff and limit numbers, there will be a range of temporary restrictions; queues and delays are likely.

Government guidance states visits should only take place if waste cannot be stored safely at home without risking harm or ill-health, or harm to public health and amenity. If not an essential journey, please wait until sites are back to usual.

Recycling sites open from 11 May: Bridgwater, Chard, Dulverton, Frome, Highbridge, Street, Taunton, Wellington, Wells, Williton and Yeovil.

The other five sites are due to reopen from Tuesday 26 May.
