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.

What a service standard is

A service standard is a reasonable and measurable expectation of service provision from the customer. And an honest commitment by Somerset Council to attain or surpass expectations in delivering our services. Service standards have been prepared across the whole organisation so that customers are aware of what levels of service they can expect from us.

There may be some variations in different geographical parts of Somerset for a period of time until services are fully aligned from former District areas.

Customer Service Standards

Our Customer Service Standards have been developed to support the commitments we have made to you in our Customer Promise, and apply to all council services.
