8. What about nappies or incontinence pads?

We are offering households a number of options in the way that they dispose of nappies and hygiene products such as incontinence pads. We will be helping them on an individual basis if they approach the council for assistance.

■ If residents need to dispose of nappies and hygiene products such as  incontinence pads they should double wrap the products and dispose of them in their current grey wheeled bin.

■ If you find this difficult, please ask us for assistance. We can provide advice on reducing waste and if appropriate give you a bigger bin.

■ If this still doesn’t work for the household, you may be offered a sacked fortnightly collection with assisted collections if required.

We are here to help so if you would like to discuss this please contact customer services on 01395571515 or email csc@eastdevon.gov.uk
