Waste and recycling in Sedgemoor

Information about waste and recycling collections (including bank holiday collections), Sort IT Plus, reporting a missed collection, garden waste collections, household waste recycling centres, recycling banks, flooding and more.

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.

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 Online. 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 icon itself) to view your collection information.  Click here to launch Interactive Mapping Online - Waste Collection.

Alternatively you can contact Sedgemoor District Council's Customer Services on the above telephone number, who can send a printed copy out to you.
