Waste and Recycling
Update May 2017: Can & Food Tins recycle bank removed. A recent assessment of all recycling banks throughout the borough highlighted that some banks are rarely used resulting in a financial loss to West Devon Borough Council whilst providing little benefit to the local community. The assessment took in to account the annual lift cost for each bank type, tonnage and material revenue, the cost to refurbish and recycling credits.
Recycling banks are situated in the main town car park. Here you can recycle: glass bottles, paper, magazines, drinks cartons, plastic bottles, food tins, drink can, aerosols, clothes and shoes.
