May bank holidays bring waste day changes

Check list: what should you recycle and when after a bank holiday?

May’s bank holidays mean two weeks of changes to collections for every home in Somerset.

No collections on the 7 May Early May Bank Holiday Monday and the 28 May Spring Bank Holiday Monday will mean one-day-later collections for both weeks, including Friday collections on Saturdays.

Recycling sites remain on their usual schedules throughout both weeks, including all 16 opening at 8am on Saturdays, Sundays and both Bank Holiday Mondays.
