Bins and recycling
Waste and recycling alert
There is a waste and recycling alert currently in force. Please check details on our Waste and recycling page.
Unfortunately, due to the high number of Covid cases in Devon, several of our HGV and transit drivers are off sick with the virus.
We would like to make you aware that we are short staffed but our crews are trying their very best to continue with scheduled collections. If we miss you, we would like to apologise in advance and ask that you check our website for updates. If we do not get to you on your scheduled collection date, we ask you to please leave your waste or recycling displayed as we aim to return within five working days.
We apologise again and thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Stay safe everyone.
