No collections on Bank Holiday Monday 29 August mean recycling and rubbish collections are all one day later that week, including Friday pick-ups on Saturday 3 September.
The changes affect collections of recycling, refuse, garden waste, as well as clinical waste and assisted collections.
Residents should sort and segregate recycling, ensure no recycling – especially food – is in the rubbish bin and put all waste containers out by 7am.
All 16 recycling sites are on their usual timetables, with five – Bridgwater, Frome, Minehead, Taunton and Yeovil – open 8am-4pm seven days a week, and 11 open five days a week, including Saturday 8am-4pm, Sunday 8am-1pm and Bank Holiday Monday 8am-7pm.
All kerbside collections return to their usual schedules from Monday 5 September.
