All residents received information about the seasonal changes to recycling and waste collections earlier this month and the information is available on the East Devon District Council website on the waste and recycling pages.

Householders can also find out about their collections by putting their postcode into the ‘when is my bin collected’ area on the website.

The council also has a smart phone app which will send reminders about recycling and waste collection days tailored to your own address.

The East Devon mobile app is free and is available to download for iphone users from the Apple App Store and for Android smart phone users from the Google Play Store.

East Devon residents will be able to recycle Christmas wrapping paper this year, as they have been able to in previous years. However, as is normal practice, the district council unable to accept shiny, metallic, plastic or glittered wrapping paper for recycling as this type of material cannot be accepted by the recycling mill.
