On Sunday 5th March Cheddar played its part in the national Great British Spring Clean event. Right across the country community groups set about collecting litter and tidying up their local areas. In Cheddar parish councillors, members of the community and a keen group of lads from the 1st Cheddar Scouts set off in three teams from Kings Leisure Centre equipped with bags, hi viz jackets and litter pickers provided by Sedgemoor District Council. In just over an hour they collected more than a dozen bags of discarded bottles, cans, card and general rubbish from the Strawberry Line, Station Road and the path behind the school to Draycott Park. Parish Council Chairman Peter Council thanked all those who took part, adding “Cheddar is such a beautiful place; let’s try to keep it looking nice. Use the litter bins or take your rubbish home, then we’ll all enjoy our village more.”

Waste services over Easter

Kerbside recycling and refuse collections that would usually occur on Good Friday 14 April will be on Saturday 15 April. All collections in the week starting Easter Monday 17 April will be one day later, with Friday’s pick-ups moving to Saturday 22 April.

 

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/
