Seven-day opening at five recycling centres
Starts 1 April 2014
Seven-day a week extended opening will start from April at five of Somerset's busiest Recycling Centres.
From Tuesday 1 April, Recycling Centres at Bridgwater, Frome, Minehead, Taunton and Yeovil will open from 8am to 4pm every day, including Sunday.
Opening times are not changing at Somerset’s nine other Recycling Centres and two Community Recycling Sites, which close on two weekdays but are otherwise open 8am to 4pm daily, except Sundays when open 8am to 1pm and Mondays when open 8am to 7pm.
The extended opening hours at five of the busiest sites are expected to benefit tens of thousands of residents and contribute to efforts of all Councils in Somerset to continue driving down the already falling rate of fly-tipping.
Full information on recycling centres, opening hours and the 30 or more materials they recycle is provided at www.somersetwaste.gov.uk and available from Somerset Direct on 0845 3459188.
