Households taking part in EDDC’s recycling trials in Feniton and Exmouth (The Colony) have until Monday, November 30 complete the online or paper questionnaire and return it to the council.

A questionnaire which tells East Devon District Council how its new recycling trials are going can still be filled out by residents.

Households taking part in EDDC’s recycling trials in Feniton and Exmouth (The Colony) have until Monday, November 30 complete the online or paper questionnaire and return it to the council.

From mid-September, residents in the two areas have had the items they can recycle extended to include cardboard and mixed plastics.

These items, along with their usual number of other recyclables - including glass, metals, paper, plastic bottles, textiles and food waste - are collected from the kerbside every week.

As households in the trial areas are recycling more, they are throwing away less rubbish in their grey wheeled bin which is now being collected every three weeks.

Feedback from the questionnaire and information from the trial will help the council make a decision on any future changes to the current recycling and waste service.

Information on the trials is available on the council’s website and includes a list of frequently asked questions, and top tips on how to recycle effectively.

For residents who need assistance, the council’s recycling team can be contacted on 01395 571515 or email csc@eastdevon.gov.uk.

As well as paper copies, the questionnaire can be completed online at www.eastdevon.gov.uk/consultation-and-surveys/recycling-and-waste
