Recycling collections in the North Devon district

Please be aware recycling collection days for parts of West Down and the Forches area of Barnstaple have recently changed. We have sent letters to all homes affected by a day change. You can also check your collection dates through this web page.

 

The food waste recycling service is easy to use. 

  1. For your convenience, we can provide you with a small kitchen caddy. This helps you to collect all your raw and cooked food waste in the kitchen
  2. Once full, or at the end of the day, empty the contents of your kitchen caddy into your green wheelie bin.
  3. If you don't have a wheelie bin, you can request a kerbside caddy. This is emptied at the same time as your other recycling containers.

If you prefer, you can line your kitchen caddy with either a sheet of newspaper, kitchen roll or a corn starch bag - but please, do not use plastic bags.

You can also put some of your food waste into a home composter.
