Recycling sites switch to winter hours on 1 October

It’s time: the switch to winter hours starts at 9am on Thursday 1 October

Every one of Somerset’s 16 recycling sites will go over to their winter timetables from Thursday 1 October, with weekday opening hours of 9am to 5pm while weekends remain 9am to 4pm. 

Summer hours – 9am-6pm when sites are open weekdays, 9am-4pm weekends – resume on Thursday 1 April 2021. 

With an impressive average recycling rate of well over 77%, Somerset’s recycling sites network is open every day of the year except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day to take dozens of materials.
