Missed collections

Unless you have an assisted collection, put refuse bins and recycling out at the edge of your property by 7am (as collection times can vary) and no earlier than the night before. Do not obstruct pavements or roads and take containers back in as soon as possible after collections.

Refuse bin lids should be closed and only refuse in the bin will be collected. Extra refuse on top or alongside will not usually be taken.

You can report a missed waste collection to arrange a return collection.

Items left out for recycling that are not collected will be left in the container with a card or tag to explain.

Bad weather can affect collections. Visit the Somerset Waste Partnership website and search "bad weather" for guidance and updates.
