Early starts for recycling teams

WASTE and recycling teams will be hitting the road at an earlier time from next week.

First collections will begin at 7am from March 5, after North Somerset Council’s waste contractor May Gurney decided to reform its working hours.

The idea is that crews will be able to get around the town more quickly by beginning their rounds ahead of the morning rush hour.

This mean residents will need to have their bins and recycling boxes ready for collection before 7am, or risk being missed out.
