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.

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.
