Our Waste Management Team is responsible for the safe disposal of all municipal household waste generated in the eight districts of Devon. With a recycling rate of 55%, Devon is one of the top recycling counties in the country, compared to the national average of 43%.

On this site you’ll find everything you need to know about Devon’s recycling centres including locations, opening hours and full guidance on what they can and can’t accept.

We also provide information about household collections and what you can do with bulky items.

We are dedicated to reducing, reusing, recycling, composting and as a last option, recovering energy wherever possible. Recycle Devon is full of useful information to help you cut down on waste and save money at home,  in shops, in the garden and even at work.
