Frome recycling centre to open every day

SOMERSET Waste Partnership’s governing board has decided that Frome Recycling Centre will be open every day.

From Tuesday 1st April Frome Recycling Centre will be open from 8.00am to 4.00pm daily except for 8.00am to 1.00pm on Sundays and 8.00am to 7.00pm on Mondays.

Frome recycling is not the only centre to benefit from this increase, Bridgewater, Minehead, Taunton and Yeovil will also open every day during the same times. However, Coleford and Middlezoy recycling centres are due to close. The new arrangements will not affect the schedules of the other nine recycling centres.

Extended opening hours at five of the busiest sites are expected to benefit tens of thousands of residents, improve recycling levels and contribute to all councils’ efforts to continue driving down the already falling rate of fly-tipping. The changes were also required to make savings for Somerset County Council.

Leaflets, advertising and signage will be used to advise customers of the changes, while full information on recycling centres, opening hours and the 30 or more materials they take is listed on www.somer and available from Somerset Direct on 0845 3459188.
