RECENT severe weather conditions in Somerset have caused a delay in rolling out information on the district's new recycling service.

RECENT severe weather conditions in Somerset have caused a delay in rolling out information on the district's new recycling service.

Sedgemoor District Council opted to introduce Somerset Waste Partnership's SORT-IT PLUS service in a bid to reduce landfill and make the region one of the highest recycling districts in the country.

The scheme means that food waste, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles will be collected weekly and general non-recyclable refuse will be collected fortnightly.

After heavy snow fell across the region postal delays meant many did not receive their personal notification pack publicising roadshows in the area.

Residents in the villages due to commence the SORT-IT PLUS collection scheme should now receive their notification packs by the end of this week.

An exhibition in Burnham at the Princess Hall will still go ahead between 10am-1pm tomorrow (Thurs).
