Please be aware that Bath & North East Somerset Council is calling on residents to consider their own health and that of their neighbours by not having bonfires where possible during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

People are asked to avoid lighting fires in case others living near them have had their breathing affected due to the virus or have other respiratory problems that could be worsened by smoke. 

Although garden waste collections have been suspended temporarily to ensure frontline services continue, the council is asking for residents’ cooperation in protecting everyone’s health by not burning their waste while they wait to have it collected.
