Refuse collection calendars online soon
Posted on: 5 November 2015
New refuse collection calendars will be available online to download for homes across North Devon later this month.
The calendars show when household refuse collections are due, starting from the beginning of December 2015 until November 2016.
In a change from last year, the calendars will no longer be posted out to all homes in the district, saving around £18,000 in council tax money.
North Devon Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Cllr Rodney Cann, says: “With a growing number of people now online, we want to highlight to residents that they can download their refuse calendars from our website. It’s really simple to do – just go to northdevon.gov.uk/collectiondays and type in your postcode. Not only can you download and print off your refuse calendar if you want to, but the page gives you information about your next refuse and recycling collections, as well as any service alerts that may be in place.”
Residents who do not have any access to the internet, but still require a copy of their refuse calendar, are being asked to contact Customer Services on 01271 374776.
Meanwhile, waste and recycling kerbside collections have been confirmed over the festive period, with some day changes as a result of the three upcoming bank holidays. Residents are being asked to check their collection dates in advance through the council website. A summary of collection dates for Christmas and New Year can also be found on facebook at facebook.com/NorthDevonCouncil, along with other waste and recycling information and conversations.Environment
