Recycling collections in the North Devon district

Please be aware that recycling collections in North Devon are NOT affected by the recent news about SMR. Domestic kerbside collections in the North Devon district continue as normal. Only properties in the Torridge district are affected.

We offer a free-of-charge clinical waste collection. Items can be collected from a named, discreet, location accessible from 5am on the day of collection.

Arrange a clinical waste collection

Clinical waste is waste that consists wholly or partly of:

  • human or animal tissue
  • blood or bodily fluids
  • excretions
  • drugs or other pharmaceutical products
  • swabs or dressings
  • syringes, needles or other sharp instruments

In the case of medicines, it is recommended you dispose of these by returning them to a pharmacist.

You can arrange regular or ad hoc collections to meet your needs. If you need to cancel or suspend your regular collection please contact us.
