Having a Spring Clean?

If you have items in good condition that you are clearing out, please remember your local charity shop, furniture reuse group or try your local Freecycle or Freegle group, or an online auction such as e-bay. These are all excellent ways of giving new life to good items and cutting down on waste at the same time. For details see: www.somersetwaste.gov.uk
 

Recycling Sites

There are Recycling Centres and Community Recycling Sites throughout the county where a wide range of household materials can be recycled and other household waste deposited for disposal. All 18 sites are open five days a week, including Saturdays 8am-4pm, Sundays 8am-1pm, and Mondays 8am-7pm. Sites are free to use for household waste, except Coleford, Crewkerne, Dulverton and Middlezoy, which have a £2 entry fee. At all sites, there are charges for hardcore, soil, gas bottles and tyres starting at £2.90.
