Changes to recycling collection days are due to start next week for some North Devon households.
Posted on: 25 September 2018
From Monday 1 October, North Devon Council is introducing changes to recycling collections in some areas to accommodate an overall increase in the number of dwellings within the district.
All households affected by the change will have already received a letter informing them of their new collection day. Households in the areas affected that have not received a letter will not have a change in recycling collection day.
Areas affected by the change are Atherington, Bishops Tawton, Bittadon, Brayford, Chapelton, Charles, Chittlehampton, East Buckland, Filleigh, Furze, Guineaford, Gunn, Hannaford, High Bickington, Kings Heanton, Landkey, Marwood, Middle Marwood, Milltown, Prixford, Rapscott, Stags Head, Swimbridge, Umberleigh, Warkleigh, West Buckland, West Down and Yarnscombe.
Recycling collection day changes are also being introduced next week for a small amount of households in Barnstaple, Braunton, Ilfracombe, and South Molton.
Lead Member for the Environment, Rodney Cann says: “I would like to thank the residents of North Devon for their continued efforts to recycle as much of their waste as possible. This small change in recycling collections for some areas within the district is needed so that we can continue to provide an efficient service. I thank the households affected for their understanding while we introduce the change.
“I would like to remind all households, not just those affected by the day change, to have recycling containers presented ready for collection by 7am on their collection day.”
Residents can check the collection days for their households on the council website at any time www.northdevon.gov.uk/collectiondates
