Bins and recycling
Qualified HGV drivers
Are you looking for the possibility of full-time or part-time work as a North Devon Council HGV driver? If so, we encourage you to please register your interest via an agency office. Acorn is our preferred agency, and you can contact the Barnstaple branch via telephone, email or you can visit them face-to-face at 2 Boutport Street Barnstaple Devon EX31 1RH. We look forward to hearing from you.
We are asking that you please put out your bins and bags by 6am on the day of your collection or the night before. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
We are sorry if we missed you. For information on if and when we will be returning, please visit our Collection Dates webpage.
