Bin collection days

Recycle More was introduced in the Taunton Deane area of our district at the start of November 2021 and will see the Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) collect much more kerbside recycling every week.

West Somerset is scheduled to get the new service early in 2022.

Garden and clinical waste collections will not change with Recycle More.

Extra support is available for anyone with Recycle More concerns. Visit the Somerset Waste Partnership website for more information.

Where and when to put bins out

  • Make sure all rubbish or recycling is placed inside the correct container
  • Make sure the lid is closed on your black wheelie bin
  • If you have forgotten to put your recycling or bin out for collection, put them out on your next collection date
  • Put bins and recycling boxes out by 7am. They should be at the edge of your property and visible from the road
  • Take your bin off the highway as soon as possible after the collection

Get help putting bins out

If you have mobility difficulties or impairments that mean you cannot carry containers to the kerbside, and there is no one in your household who can help you, we can arrange free assisted collections for recycling and refuse.
