Spring Bank Holiday on Monday 27 May means all rubbish and recycling collections will be one day later that week, including Friday collections taking place on Saturday 1 June.
Recycling and rubbish collection days are changing for some households in Mendip and South Somerset. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.

Introduction

All 16 Somerset recycling sites open at weekends, 9am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Opening days during the week vary from site to site. When sites are open on weekdays, they all open for the same hours and these hours differ from summer to winter.

  • Summer opening hours: April to September – 9am to 6pm.
  • Winter opening hours: October to March – 9am to 5pm.
  • Bank holiday opening hours: If a bank holiday falls on a day a recycling site is usually open, then it will be open as normal. The only exception to this is Christmas Day and Boxing Day when all sites are closed.

You can check the opening hours in full or download site or district timetables, valid from 1 April 2023 below.

Our sites receive around 1.5 million visits a year. By sorting all materials in advance and following staff advice, residents helps us recycle more material and recycle more in the UK.
