Assisted waste collections

If you face difficulties in taking your waste and recycling to the edge of your property, you can apply to have the collection crew come to your door to collect it. You can apply online for an assisted waste collection.

You may need an assisted collection because you have mobility difficulties or impairment makes it unreasonable for you to move your waste yourself, and no one in the property can help you. In this case, the collection crew will collect rubbish and/or recycling from an agreed external point on the property, and empty and return any wheeled bins and/or recycling boxes.

This service is only available for residents of domestic properties in Taunton Deane. We cannot collect from businesses. However the Somerset Waste Partnership website lists details of contractors who may be able to help businesses.

Complete the online form to apply for an assisted waste collection, or call us on telephone 01823 356356. For further information on assisted collections, please see the Somerset Waste Partnership website.

Somerset Waste Partnership will contact you and, if you are eligible, aims to arrange a collection within 10 working days.

Assisted collections apply to your household rubbish, recycling and garden waste. Households in Taunton Deane are limited to one wheeled bin or four black sacks of rubbish each fortnight. Recycling and food waste are collected weekly.
