East Devon is moving forward with plans to introduce a district-wide chargeable green waste collection service in 2018.

The council is working with partners SUEZ UK to provide a fortnightly chargeable green waste collection service for its residents who have been asking for this kind of service for a considerable period

The council has now approved the proposals and the service is expected to be introduced in Spring 2018.

Many councils across the country successfully operate a chargeable green waste collection service and East Devon is keen to continue to further improve and modernise its recycling and waste service by introducing this new initiative.

The cost of the new service is currently being considered and we will let residents know the full details closer to the service introduction.
