Waste and Recycling

31 July 2020: Much more recycling each week and far less waste will be the result of a decision today to roll out the expanded Recycle More kerbside collection service.

The service will start in phases, with all of Mendip from the end of October, all of South Somerset next summer, and Sedgemoor and Somerset West and Taunton after that.

Recycle More, which was successfully trialled with more than 1,000 Somerset families, was approved for roll-out by Somerset Waste Board. It will mean:

  • More recycling each week, adding plastic pots, tubs and trays, beverage cartons/Tetra Paks, small household batteries and small electrical items to the kerbside list.
  • A new tough reusable Bright Blue Bag for plastics and metals. The base-weighted bag folds flat when empty and has a Velcro closure.
  • Far emptier rubbish bins, which will be collected every three weeks.
  • Expanded recycling for communal collections, such as flats, and from schools.

Full details will be delivered to every home well before it starts in that area.

An easy move to reduced rubbish and extra recycling led residents in long-term large-scale Somerset trials of Recycle More to give it an 86% approval rating.
