Easter bin collections in North Devon

waste and recycling bins

As the Easter bank holiday approaches, North Devon Council is advising residents to stay informed about their waste and recycling collection schedules. To ensure a smooth process during the holiday period, residents are encouraged to check their collection dates on the council's website.

There will be no waste or recycling collections on Good Friday (29 March), collections due that day will be made on Saturday 30 March instead. For the entire week commencing Monday 1 April, collections will be one day later than usual, running from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 6 April. Normal collection schedules will resume on Monday 8 April.

With the Easter festivities resulting in increased cardboard and foil waste, residents are reminded to continue recycling responsibly. Cardboard and brown paper should be placed in brown bags, while plastics (except black) and scrunched up foil can be deposited in green or black recycling boxes.

 Lead Member for Waste and Recycling at North Devon Council, Cllr Julie Hunt, says: "If you're in any doubt about your collection dates over the bank holiday, you can check our website at any time. We also offer a convenient webpage to assist residents in identifying which materials belong in each bin, box, or bag."

To avoid missed collections, residents are advised to display their bins, bags, and containers at the kerbside by 6am on their scheduled day or the evening before.
