Having a Spring Clean?

If you have items in good condition that you are clearing out, please remember your local

charity shop, furniture reuse group or try your local Freecycle or Freegle group, or an

online auction, such as eBay. These are all excellent ways of giving new life to good items

and cutting down on waste at the same time. For details see: www.somersetwaste.gov.uk
