VE Day and waste collections – 8/9 May

One day later collections after VE Day


The bank holiday for VE Day – marking the 75th anniversary of victory in Europe – on Friday 8 May will see no waste collections so those recycling and rubbish pick-ups will be on Saturday 9 May from 7am.


Collection crews are asking all residents to ensure their containers are out on time, with contents sorted, plastic bottles squashed, cardboard flattened, and – if safe – cans crushed.


To keep up to date with collections, recycling sites and the impact of COVID-19, sign up for the Somerset Waste Partnership e-newsletter at or follow @somersetwaste on Facebook or Twitter.
