Other County policy and guidance

  • Waste Management and Recycling - Development Contribution Methodology

    Devon County Council is the Waste Disposal Authority and as such is responsible for managing Local Authority Collected Waste. Public recycling centres across Devon play an important role in enabling the County Council to meet its statutory responsibility. Housing growth across the county is resulting in increasing demand and pressure upon these facilities of which many require replacement or expansion to meet capacity requirements.

    This paper sets out the methodology for calculating financial contributions which will be requested from development in order to maintain and improve the network of recycling centres and enable the impact of development to be accommodated.
