Changes to waste collections in North Devon
Posted on: 15 February 2019
Residents in North Devon are being reminded of possible changes to their waste collections.
From 18 February parts of the North Devon district will have their green or black wheelie bin or bag collected on a different day and in some cases with a one-off extra week between collections.
The change are needed due to growth in the district and to ensure collections are as efficient as possible. The areas affected by the changes are:
- Parts of South Molton (Littabourne, Nadder Meadow, Raleigh Mead, Churchill Cresent)
- Parts of Barnstaple (Rumsam, Hughes Avenue, Goodleigh Road, Roundswell area, Sticklepath, some of Landkey Road, Westaway Heights, Youings Drive)
- Bishops Tawton
- Parts of Braunton
- Kentisbury Ford
- Kings Nympton
- West Buckland
Households affected were sent a letter from the council in January to notify them of the changes.
Executive member for Environment, Councillor Rodney Cann says: “Our district is growing so we are collecting waste from more households than ever. On top of this our customers are recycling more and putting less in their black bins. This is fantastic news for our environment, but it means we need to reschedule our crews and resources to make sure we are giving residents the best service we can. Please check the collection calendar on our website to ensure you don’t miss your collection.”
You can check your collection days online at northdevon.gov.uk/collectiondates. If you think your collection has been missed please report it to the customer services team by telephone on 01271 374776 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.Posted in:
