A Facebook message from SWP -
"Sorry; missed recycling East Chinnock, Hardington Mandeville and Wells Coronavirus-related staff shortages mean missed recycling collections today Wednesday in and around East Chinnock, Hardington Mandeville and Wells. Road list below.
We regret that crews cannot immediately return; please re-present recycling next Wednesday from 6am.
For more recycling space, flatten and tear up cardboard; rinse, squash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and - if safe - crush cans. Stack boxes with locked food bin on top.
If materials cannot be stored or would present a health or fire risk, 10 recyclesites - including Wells and Yeovil - are open to 5pm today Wednesday for essential visits only, and can take all kerbside materials for recycling.
The only exception is food waste, which should be double bagged and put in your rubbish, or added to the energy-from-waste skip at any recycling site.
Apologies, Somerset Waste Partnership"
All collections NORMALLY start at 6am from Monday 1 February
All household kerbside collections - recycling, rubbish and garden waste - will begin at 6am, rather than the previous 7am, from Monday 1 February.
The aim is to step up staff and customer safety while ensuring waste services are maintained despite the continued disruptive pressure of COVID-19 on Somerset's kerbside collections.
