As summer draws closer, North Devon Council is reminding customers to check their garden waste permits to ensure their collections continue throughout the warmer months. 

Reminder emails and letters are being sent to customers whose garden waste permits are up for renewal. The council is encouraging customers to check their junk email folders in case the email hasn't gone into their main inbox. If customers are unsure on the expiry date of their garden waste they can check the permit found on the lid of their bin.

Councillor Netti Pearson, Lead Member for Environment says: "If your garden waste is up for renewal you can simply reapply using the council's website. Please remember only to reapply during the same month your permit runs out, otherwise you'll lose a month."
