Recycling sites to open to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays, and to 6pm on open summer weekdays from April.
Reflecting site users' demands and keeping all 16 sites open, each
site's hours will help limit congestion and carefully match its existing
use and future needs as Somerset’s population and housing stock
From Monday 1 April, the changes include:
• Year-round 9am-4pm weekend hours at all sites on Saturdays and Sundays
• Later summer (6pm Apr-Sep) and winter (5pm Oct-Mar) weekday closing
• Same number or extra days at 10 sites, including an extra day each at Chard and Wells (Dulcote)
• Fewer days at six, such as saved-from-closure Crewkerne and Dulverton
• Reflecting low user numbers early in the day, all sites will start work at 9am
• With 6pm summer weekday closing, underused 7pm Monday evenings to end
