Refuse & recycling
Both refuse and recycling are the responsibility of Taunton Deane District Council. Recycling and food waste are collected every week, general and garden refuse are collected on alternate weeks. You can check your collection calendar here, but most Stoke St Gregory collections are on a Wednesday.
Recycling is divided into glass, tins and cans, plus paper, in the green bin, and plastics and cardboard in the black bin. Food waste goes in a small brown bin, general waste in a big black wheelie-bin and garden waste in a green one.
Somerset Waste Partnership handles waste on behalf of all Somerset local authorities, and some interesting news and information can be found on their website.
