Threatened Closure of Crewkerne Recycling Centre

Message from Alyn Jones, Executive Director, Strategy Workforce and Localities, Somerset Council received on 29 January 2024.

For clarity, no recycling centres will close overnight following the budget setting meeting at Full Council (which is due to take place on February 20th). The local authority must seek the views of residents through proper consultation beforehand. So there will be ample opportunity for communities to have a say, and their voices heard. In the meantime, commercial negotiations with our contractors Biffa, are ongoing.

A list of FAQs about recycling centres, which we hope will provide additional assurances, will be posted online shortly on our City, Town, and Parish Council page:
