Winter Maintenance Operations
The Town Council has purchased a snowplough blade and grit spreader (pictured right) which can be fitted to a mini-tractor to help clear the footways and pedestrian precincts in the Town Centre. This service is provided in partnership with South Somerset District Council.
The Somerset Waste Partnership has set up a useful website to keep local people aware of how severe weather is affecting kerbside waste collection and recycling arrangements. Click here for more information.
Yeovil Town Council has installed 40 grit bins at various strategic locations across the Town – including the Town Centre. A list highlighting the location of these bins, which have been provided for the benefit of local residents and businesses to use on public areas outside their premises, is provided here.
Somerset County Council, which is responsible for most of the highways in Somerset, has set up a useful website, which gives updated information at regular intervals about their winter maintenance operations.
It also includes a live gritting map showing the treated routes.
