Your bin should be sufficient for your needs. 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 and food caddies and we will accept more recycling in plastic bags (not black bags) or a container no bigger than the green box.

Packaging

Plastic packaging and Tetra Pak juice cartons - can be recycled at your nearest recycling centre. If they have to go in the landfill bin please flatten them.

Cardboard

Cardboard can be recycled at Tesco stores in Exmouth and Seaton or at your nearest local recycling centre. If it does have to go into the landfill bin please flatten or break it up.

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
