Please note: Due to expected high volumes of glass and cardboard over the festive period, our crews will only collect recycling from Torridge bags and boxes. Any additional glass should be retained for future collection or taken to a local bottle bank. Any additional cardboard (which does not fit in the brown bags) should be taken to one of the local recycling centres (visit recycledevon.org for opening times).

Garden Waste

The expected Christmas service break starts on the 17th December.

Green wheelie bins will not be emptied between Monday 17th December and Friday 11th January.

Please note: Real Christmas trees will only be picked up in January if they have been chopped into pieces and placed into the green wheelie bin. Our crews will not pick up Christmas trees which are not inside the green bin.
