PEOPLE planning to do their bit for the environment today (Tuesday) should know the recycling centre at Artillery Road on the Lufton Trading Estate, in Yeovil, is closed.

The well-used centre will be shut from this week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and will only be open until 1pm on Sundays. Other opening times are 8am to 7pm on Mondays and 8am to 4pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

A spokesman for the Somerset Waste Partnership said: “These new changes in opening hours have come about because of the savings needed to be made by Somerset County Council.”
