It's official: North Somerset residents are the best in the South West - and the seventh-best in England - for recycling!
The latest government figures for 2020/2021 show that 60.4% of household waste is recycled - ranking North Somerset the best in the region and up two places to seventh-best in the whole of England.
A big thank you to all our local residents and to our waste and recycling crews for helping make this happen. Not only is this great for our environment, but it cuts the cost of waste disposal too.
Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day all fall at the weekend so there is no change to recycling and waste collection days. You should put their recycling boxes and bins out on their usual collection days. Collection days can be checked on the council's website using the following link: www.n-somerset.gov.uk/calendar
