Please place your refuse and recycling on the edge of your property by 7:00am on your collection day, and no earlier than the night before.
Sedgemoor District Council's waste and recycling services are managed by the Somerset Waste Partnership. Sedgemoor District Council retains responsibility for deciding the nature and type of services it provides, setting the level of charges for some services, and providing the customer service centre to handle customer enquiries.
Flooded? Household and Garden Waste and Recycling advice:
For households affected by flooding- where bins have been lost/damaged by floodwater- all waste and recycling bins will be replaced free of charge. Once you can return to your property, or the area is again accessible for bin delivery, please contact Sedgemoor Direct on 0845 4082543 or local rate 01278 435435.
Where customers have been evacuated, or collections suspended, please note all payments for garden waste customers will be suspended for 14/15. We are hoping to offer a special rate for flood-affected customers re-joining the scheme later in the year. There is no need to contact us to suspend the service but please call us when you want to re-join by contacting Sedgemoor Direct on 0845 4082546 or local rate 01278 435435.
Household waste collection days
Recycling and food waste is collected on a weekly basis, whilst general refuse will be collected once per fortnight, normally in a wheeled bin provided by Sedgemoor District Council.
You can find your collection day within Interactive Mapping on Line. Having launched the application, enter your postcode and select your house from the list. Next, click within the boundary of your property (not on the house itself) to view the information. Click here to launch Interactive Mapping Online.
Alternatively you can contact Sedgemoor District Council's Customer Services on the above telephone number, who can send a printed copy out to you.
