collection services returning to normal in Burnham-On-Sea area
collection services will start getting back to usual across the
Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge area on Monday after several days
of weather disruption.
collections - recycling and rubbish - are restarting from 7am and
running until late to catch up, and Highbridge's Isleport Recycling
Centre will return to its normal
whose kerbside collection was missed last week, and residents who
have a Monday collection, should put all their bins and boxes out
by 7am and leave them out later.
only exceptions are clinical waste, which needs to be put out the
night before for early morning collections, and garden waste, the
collection of which is still suspended so those trucks can be diverted
to collect rubbish.
there are areas that cannot be reached on Monday due to the road
conditions, those households should put their waste out at the kerbside
again on Tuesday by 7am.
with excess waste is advised - if they have space - to store that
and add it to future collections, or - if they have time and transport
- to take all their waste to any recycling site.
usual on Mondays, the "big five" recycling sites - Bridgwater,
Frome, Minehead, Taunton, Yeovil - will be open 8am to 4pm, while
all the other 11 sites including Highbridge will be open 8am to
waste collections due on Monday will be collected; missed bulky
waste collections from last week will be contacted soon to rearrange
praised Kier and Viridor staff for their "incredible effort"
in "challenging conditions" last week, completing almost
all work on Thursday before the weather closed in.
with delayed collections from last week are advised not to call
council customer services, as their locations will be known, and
so the lines can be kept free to assist the vulnerable.
those putting out waste this week is urged to ensure containers
are clear of any snow, with rubbish bin lids closed, and recycling
materials sorted and segregated in boxes.
