Since 1st November 2016, East Devon District Council ceased to collect loose bags of waste placed to the side of the wheeled bin.

Your bin should be sufficient for your needs. However for those one off occasions when you have surplus waste, a collection can be arranged as a chargeable service. For details please call customer service 01395517515.

Please make sure everyone in your home knows what can be recycled in your green box and food caddy.

Number of boxes

You can have up to three recycling boxes, bags and food caddies. We will accept more recycling in plastic bags (not black bags) or a container no bigger than the green box.

Cardboard

Larger cardboard packing should be flattened and any polystyrene removed. It can then be placed underneath or to the side of the recycling box for collection at the kerbside.

Compression

Compress the bin liners before they go in the bin, air takes up a lot of space.

Sideways

Placing the bags in the bin sideways takes up less room.

If you have done all you can but are still struggling to get everything into your bin then please contact us by calling 01395 571515 or email  csc@eastdevon.gov.uk
