Once this new contract is finalised, SUEZ will deliver the new 'Recycle More' service, operating new vehicles and collecting a wide range of recycling every week, including plastic packaging.
The contract is one of the largest collection contracts in the UK, providing waste collection services to more than 250,000 households across the whole of Somerset.
Recycle More will expand the weekly collection of recyclable1 waste to include new materials, including plastic pots, tubs and trays; Tetra Paks and other food and drink cartons; small electrical items; and household batteries. By collecting the majority of recyclable household material each week, Recycle More will reduce the volume of left-over general rubbish in residents' bins, which will subsequently be collected every three weeks. The new service will be introduced in phases over two years, starting in June 2020.
