Keep an eye on revised collections by visiting Somerset Waste Partnerhips website to see the details of bank holiday changes over Easter, May and the August bank holidays.
Many of us are indulge in Easter treats such as chocolate eggs or cakes over the long weekend. Please remember to recycle cardboard boxes or (clean) packaging card sleeves as well as foil used to wrap these treats. It helps if you can scrunch up foil into a ball, so it does not get lost in the recycling process. You can check if the foil is plastic or metallic, by giving it a scrunch. If it remains scrunched, it is metallic foil and can be recycled; if it springs back, it is made from plastic polymers and cannot.
If you are using the long weekend break to do a spot of spring cleaning around the house or your garden, remember that the recycling centres will be open on their normal schedule. To check the opening hours of your local site, see www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/sites/list/
