Extra rubbish collections in Somerset: Check when yours is

HOUSEHOLDS across Somerset will have an extra rubbish collection this month ahead of changes to the collections timetable.

One-off Saturday collections will take place throughout February to ensure no one goes more than three weeks without their rubbish going when a new set of routes and collection days start from February 12.

A total of 35,000 households are due to have the one-off collection – on either February 10, 17 or 24 – will have received a letter in January to explain the changes.
