Disruption to waste collections today (19 March)
Unfortunately, our waste and recycling vehicles have not been able to access a number of areas today due to the snow. As a result, the following areas will not receive a collection today:
Lynton - Barbrook - Combe Martin - Loxhore - Trentishoe - Brendon - Forches (green bins) - Ilfracombe
We may also be unable to access Morthoe.
Due to the extent of the disruption, we will be unable to return to make these collections until your next normal collection date. We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes. Please use our postcode checker if you're unsure whether your collections will be affected by the weather.
Waste and recycling trial area survey
If you live in the waste and recycling trial area you will soon be receiving a survey together with your council tax bills. The results of the survey will be used to help the council decide the future of the trial, so we are keen to hear from as many trial area residents as possible. It is quicker and cheaper to complete the survey online.
Improvement works at Killacleave Recycling Centre, Ilfracombe
Devon County Council (DCC) will be carrying out some improvement works for the Killacleave Recycling Centre, Ilfracombe between Monday 19 February 2018 and Friday 6 April 2018. During this time the Recycling Centre will only be open to the public at weekends (with the exception of 2-6 April when the site will be open but with a limited service). DCC will only be able to provide a basic service during this period and there will only be facilities available to accept general non-recyclable waste, garden waste, metal, cardboard and wood.
All other waste should be placed in your recycling boxes (see our handy What Goes Where guide for information on what you can recycle), or taken to another tip (Barnstaple’s Seven Brethren Recycling Centre, or Maclins Quarry Recycling Centre in South Molton).
Devon County Council apologise for any inconvenience caused during these improvement works.
