Public Toilets

East Devon’s twenty Covid-safe public toilets will be closed on Christmas Day and will open as usual from Boxing Day onwards.

Due to the level of staffing needed for the required enhanced cleaning for Covid 19 compliance, the council has decided to close the Public Toilets on Christmas Day (24 hours) to allow staff to be with their extended families on the one day where they can meet their family and friends.

Recycling and waste collections

Over the Christmas and New Year period your collection days will change, please see our website for information about your refuse and recycling or clinical collections during this period. You can also find this information on your East Devon App and by asking your Alexa device.
