On 4 May John Roberts, Chairman of the Parish Council, wrote to Somerset Waste (SWP) to complain about the abysmal level of service Nether Stowey has endured in recent weeks. We received a letter in reply yesterday which I am attaching – link below.

We hope by now SWP has finally got the situation back under control, but the Parish Council will continue to monitor the situation. If your collection is missed, please report it to SWP in the normal way, and if there is not a satisfactory response, please let us know at the Parish Office or by e-mail to with your address and details of your report and what action was/was not taken.

SWP’s reply is attached here.
