Somerset Waste Partnership has announced a number of changes to the regular Friday waste collections over the festive season.
The waste collection on Friday 27 December will instead take place 2 days later, on Sunday 29 December. The collection on Friday 3 January will take place 1 day later, on Saturday 4 January.
Revised days also apply to assisted and clinical waste collections.
There are no garden waste collections between 24 December and 3 January. Garden waste collections resume from 6 January.
Recycling sites are open as normal, including all open 9am-4pm the last two Saturdays and Sundays in December and the first weekend in January. All sites are closed on 25 and 26 December and on 1 January.
Christmas trees can be used for compost at home or taken to a recycling site or council dropoff point. Charities are also collecting trees.
If you are a garden waste subscriber, you can add undecorated trees under 6ft to your garden waste collection from 7 January.
As a last resort, you can place it next to your rubbish bin on your usual collection day between 6 and 17 January and send it to costly, wasteful landfil.
