Garden waste collections in Somerset to restart
GARDEN waste collections across Somerset are restarting – after a six week break. Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) made the decision to suspend the collections so staff could be redeployed to support rubbish and recycling crews. : SWP suspends garden waste collections in Somerset for six weeks
Now, SWP has announced the collections will definitely restart on Monday (September 13) – but have warned customers not to overfill their bins. “Eight weeks have been automatically added to your subscription, taking those of most customers through to mid-July next year,” said a spokesperson for SWP. “Until your first new collection, please continue to minimise garden waste.
“Consider mowing and pruning less, and mulching grass cuttings to retain moisture and reduce weeds. “The six-week suspension allowed redeployed staff to support vital recycling and rubbish pick-ups. “Apologies for the disruption and thank you for your help and patience.”
SWP are encouraging Somerset residents to not overfill their garden waste bins – as this is unsafe for staff, passers-by and the truck. If the bin is overfilled, it will not be collected. “If too heavy in the judgement of the crew and as set out in the terms and conditions you agreed, you must reduce the weight to 40kgs or less and ensure the lid is closed before we can take your bin on your next scheduled collection in the fortnight commencing Monday, September 27,” added the spokesperson.
“How to judge weight? Whatever the crew have accepted before is probably OK. “Anything more may well be too much, especially if the lid cannot close.
If you have repeatedly added to the contents and let it settle, it is very likely overweight.”
