Waste collection points following bad weather

PUBLISHED: 12:29 22 December 2010


ADDITIONAL waste collection points have been set up by North Somerset Council due to the disruption caused by recent severe weather.

Residents will be able to drop off waste and food waste at venues in the district tomorrow (Thurs) and on Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

The drop-off points will be at Melrose Car Park in Knightstone Road, Weston, The Barn in Great Western Road, Clevedon, Clevedon Road Car Park in Nailsea and at the site of a new library in Portishead by Waitrose Garage in Harbour Road.

Residents should drop their waste sacks and food waste off at these points between 10am-3.30pm when waste collection workers and vehicles will be available.

The council is asking residents not to leave waste at these sites outside of these times as this will be treated as fly tipping, which may lead to prosecution.

The household waste and recycling centres will also be available as normal for anyone who wishes to take their refuse and recyclable waste along.

These are at Aiescombe Way in Weston, Coles Quarry in Backwell and Black Rock in Portishead, and are open from 8am-4.30pm until the weekend.

There are also recycling banks around the district. Residents can find their nearest one online at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/recyclingbanks

Collection crews will continue their efforts to catch up on missed waste collections this week.

Residents are advised to leave their wheeled bins or sacks out for collection, but to take their recycling boxes and food waste caddies back in until their next scheduled collection day.

Waste and recycling collections will also go ahead on all three Christmas and New Year bank holidays.
