Recycle More

Please find attached the sixth and final edition of the Recycle More Messenger, the regular briefings keeping you up to date with the roll-out of Recycle More which launched in South Somerset four months ago.

Collections services have, thankfully, been getting back on track in recent weeks which has helped the service bed-in after the difficult initial weeks.

We now have some estimates of the difference Recycle More is making in your district – around 130 extra tonnes of recycling each week – a great achievement to be built on in the months to come.

We hope you have found these updates useful. Please make use of the SWP website for information and advice about waste reduction and recycling – practical steps we can all take to protect our environment and help tackle climate change.

Last year Somerset recycled and reused more than 137,000 tonnes of waste, saving 123,000 tonnes of carbon – the equivalent of taking 47,321 cars off the road for a year or planting 738,216 trees.

Nearly 98% of recycling stayed in the UK, including 99.4% of plastics we collected.

Best wishes,

Somerset Waste Partnership
