NO Christmas tree recycling this year!

Tuesday, December 15, 2020|

We’ve had the following message from South Somerset:

Unfortunately we will be unable to offer the Christmas Tree recycling service  this year as our workload won’t allow for the loss of the staff or wood chippers following the loss of production during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

As an alternative, we have liaised with Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) to provide the following advice:

Where possible, SWP and SSDC would like to encourage people to consider replanting trees, home composting or adding them to a corner of the garden as a wild habitat. Where that’s not possible, anyone subscribing to the SWP Garden Waste Service can leave their tree out next to their garden waste bin for collection. The usual restrictions apply – branches should be less than 15cm or less in width. Anyone not subscribing to the service can take trees to any of the county’s 16 recycling sites https://www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/recycling/centres/ for the garden waste skips. Composted trees – part of the 50% of your recycling that stays in Somerset and 90% that stays in the UK – become Revive soil conditioner sold at recycling sites. Other collection points may be available at the time, and together, SSDC and SWP will endeavour to publicise these where possible.


We apologise for any disappointment this may cause and hope we will be able to have the service back up and running next year, and thank you for your understanding.

One Somerset…or Stronger Somerset?

Tuesday, October 20, 2020|

A debate has been running between Somerset County Council and the District Councils of Somerset about their future. You may have read about it in the County Council newsletter.

Now, Somerset County Council is asking for your views; their latest communication states:

‘In previous communications we have committed to carrying out a consultation this Autumn to gather public opinion around the One Somerset model and the future opportunities this will  bring for Somerset. To help gather feedback we are now embarking on a detailed consultation exercise and an online survey will shortly be available on the One Somerset website where you’ll be able to provide us with your thoughts.  Please take part and submit your feedback on this form when it becomes available.

In addition, Somerset County Council has commissioned an independent organisation called Blue marble Research to conduct some focus groups/depth interviews so you may be contacted directly by them and invited to take part in those sessions.

In the meantime and if you have any questions around the One Somerset business case then please take a look at the website which is updated regularly with all the latest information.’

However, the District Councils of Somerset disagree with the One Somerset proposal and South Somerset District Council has a page on its website accordingly:http://www.strongersomerset.co.uk/

This was also discussed by Castle Cary Town Council in July: https://www.castle-cary.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/CCTC-Approved-Minutes-for-Town-Council-Meeting-2020-07-20.pdf (Chair’s report c)
