Chance for residents to learn about the new East Devon waste services being introduced in June

Residents in Seaton and Honiton can find out more about East Devon’s new recycling and waste service at two information days.

Recycling officers will be on hand to explain the new service on Friday (April 21) at Seaton Tesco store and on Friday, April 28, at Honiton Tesco store.

Both events are being held from 10am to 2pm.

From mid-June, all East Devon households will be able to recycle more items which will be collected from the kerbside every week. The council will be collecting cardboard, cartons/Tetra Paks, plastics including pots, tubs, bottles and trays and small electrical items.

Officials say that as so much more is being recycled, waste collections will be carried out every three weeks. Over the next few weeks letters outlining the changes will be sent to all residents.

The new service has already begun in Exmouth where almost 17,000 households are now recycling more than ever before. The service started in the town in mid-February, and within the first six weeks of the new system residents were throwing away 15 per cent less than they had done before and recycling almost 60 per cent of their waste.

Further information about the new service is available on the council’s website – www.eastdevon.gov.uk/onboard and includes a full list of what residents will be able can recycle. You can also follow the council’s social media service on Facebook at East Devon District Council and @eastdevon on twitter.

If you want to be kept fully up-to-date about your new collections, download the council’s smart phone app which will send you reminders about your collection days tailored to your own address. The East Devon mobile app is free and is available to download from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

If you need assistance or advice about the new service, please contact EDDC on 01395 571515.

The council is holding a series of information days about the changes, so if you are unable to attend the ones at Seaton and Honiton, please look out for further dates coming up.
