A small number of properties in East Devon will have changes to their refuse and/or recycling collection days from September 2020.

These changes will affect only approximately 1,900 of East Devon’s total of 71,000 properties.

We will be writing to all affected properties at the start of September to notify all affected residents. If you do not receive a letter, your collections will not be affected.

The  reason for these changes is that East Devon is growing, with hundreds of new houses being built each year. Periodically we need to balance the workload on our collection rounds to manage this growth in households and keep our collections reliable.

Apart from collection schedule changes there will be no other changes to the service. Weekly recycling and three weekly waste will be collected in the same way.

Green waste collection dates will be completely unaffected for those residents that subscribe to the service.

If you do receive a letter notifying you about changes to your collections, please refer to this for your new collection days.

Thank you for your patience if you are affected by these changes.
