Green waste fortnightly collection service

East Devon has introduced a district-wide chargeable green waste collection service.

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 a reliable district-wide service of this kind for some time.

All of the green waste collected is composted in East Devon and used by local farms.

The service costs £48 a year and collections are made from the kerbside - easy, reliable, recycled. The service is not being subsidised by the council tax payer.  

The service is provided for eleven months of the year with a six week break at Christmas each year. The Christmas break period will be notified to residents with our usual Christmas/New Year collection calendar.

Only those properties that we can access with our full-sized vehicles are able to subscribe.
