Chelson Meadow is currently closed due to a fire in the refuse transfer station. No one has been hurt and the building has been evacuated. Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue are currently on site dealing with the fire. As a precaution, we have closed the recycling centre and the weighbridge to members of the public. Please use Weston Mill recycling centre instead. We’ll keep you updated on when we expect to re-open.
