and recycling services resume in Burnham-On-Sea
waste and recycling is being cleared this week in the Burnham-On-Sea
area by Somerset Waste Partnership collection crews and recycling

being missed, kerbside services have been underway since Tuesday,
and recycling centres re-opened early at 9am on Monday, however
garden waste collections remain suspended.
The partnership's Nick Cater told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "All
available vehicles have been mobilised to speed up collections,
including some older green recycling vehicles, while refuse trucks
are being used to collect cardboard in some areas."
"Efforts are focused on scheduled collections to ensure all
homes are reached. There will be no further catch-up of homes
previously missed; their recycling and rubbish will be removed
on their next scheduled collection day."
"Residents are urged to put their recycling and rubbish out
on the correct collection day, which will have temporarily changed
because of Christmas. Extra materials and rubbish will be accepted."
usually on a Tuesday service will be collected today, Wednesday
29th, while Wednesday homes will be collected on Thursday 30th,
Thursday homes on Friday 31st, and Friday homes on Sunday 2nd

Monday homes will be collected on Tuesday 4th January, Tuesday
homes on Wednesday 5th, Wednesday homes on Thursday 6th, Thursday

Weather permitting, all collections, including clinical and garden
waste, will return to normal from Monday 10th January.
All recycling centres are expected to be open 9am-5pm seven days
a week, except for Saturday New Years Day
