Somerset Waste Partnership - Refuse Collections

Christmas and New Year 2016-17


Somerset Waste Partnership is the local authority team managing waste and recycling services for Mendip, Sedgemoor, South Somerset and West Somerset District Councils, Taunton Deane Borough Council and Somerset County Council.

Holiday Refuse Collections

  • 19-23 December - no changes to collections
  • Mon 26th December to Friday 30th Decemnber - All collections 1 day later (including Monday pickups on Bank Holidy Tuesday 27th Dec, and Friday pickups on Sat 31st December)
  • Monday 2 January to Friday 6th January - All collections 1 day later (including Friday pickups on Sat 7th January)
  • Monday 9th January - normal service resumes.

Garden Waste collections will not take place between Monday 26th December and Friday 6th January, resuming on Monday 9th January on usual days.

Decoration-free natural Christmas Trees under 6ft can be composted - take to your local recycling centre (or if you pay for garden waste collection, but your Christmas tree out with your garden waste after 9 January).  As a last resort send your tree to landfill  by putting it out with your refuse bin on your normal collection day between 9th and 20th January 2017.

Recycling Centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day otherwise open (weather permitting - check website).
