Due to the extremely heavy snow and unsafe working conditions last week, West Devon Borough Council suspended some refuse and recycling collections on Thursday and Friday

The Council has decided that from Monday a normal refuse and recycling service will be reinstated and they are asking all residents to put out their collections as normal this week.

For those residents whose collections were missed, the Council asked them to follow the guidance below:

MISSED COLLECTIONS – if your collection was missed because of the snow:

Thursday Collections: 
For anyone whose refuse and recycling collection was missed on Thursday, please put your waste out on Monday 5 March and we will catch up as quickly as we can.

Friday Collections:   

For anyone whose refuse and recycling collection was missed on Friday, please put your missed black sacks out with your normal recycling collection on Friday 9 March.
