What we do

Devon County Council is responsible for the safe disposal of all municipal household waste generated in the eight districts of Devon.

We are dedicated to reducing, reusing, recycling, composting and as a last option, recovering energy wherever possible.

Below you will find links to everything you need to know about using our recycling centres, the collection of your household waste and much more.

  • Find your nearest centre and make sure you know what we can accept and the types of vehicles that are permitted.

  • If your bins have been missed or you'd like to request a new bin or box please contact your local district council.

  • Find out how to cut down on waste and save money and use our A-Z to help you reuse and recycle your unwanted items.

  • If you're having some work done at home don't get left to deal with the waste - we can't accept it at our recycling centres.
