East Devon is moving forward with plans to introduce a district-wide chargeable green waste collection service this year.
Many councils across the country successfully operate a chargeable green waste collection service and East Devon is keen to continue to further improve and modernise its recycling and waste service by introducing this new initiative.
The new service will cost £48 a year, with an introductory offer of a free 240ltr green bin. Green waste will be collected from the kerbside of residents’ homes – easy, reliable, recycled. The service is not being subsidised by the council tax payer.
The service will be a fortnightly collection with a break at Christmas when growth in the garden is at its lowest.
If you would like to register your interest in the service, you can apply on-line by clicking here or call customer services on 01395 571515. The Council will then contact you nearer the time with details on how to subscribe.
