Somerset is being urged to prepare for a royal overhaul of its waste collection schedule when the county celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in early June.
Public holidays often mean a change to the usual Somerset Waste Partnership recycling and waste schedule. But the extra day off on Thursday June 2 means things are more complicated for the Jubilee, including two back-to-back collections on Saturday.

The Jubilee changes mean:
No collection on Thursday, June 2. These collections will take place on Saturday, June 4th. No collection on Friday, June 3. These collections will take place on Monday, June 6th. All collections for the week starting June 6 will take place one day later, including Friday June 10 collections which will take place on Saturday June 11.
Everyone should be sure to be aware of the changes and to take out their trash and recycling before 7am on the correct day. The changed days can be seen in the 12-month collection day calendars distributed with the introduction of Recycle More collections, except in Mendip.
Residents should plan ahead and do their best to minimize Jubilee celebration waste and maximize recycling. Anyone hosting a street party on Saturday 4th June should check if they are due for recycling and/or litter collection that day and ensure that teams can still access it to collect their litter.
Don’t forget that the collections usually due on Thursday, June 2 will take place on Saturday, June 4.
