Non-recyclable waste is set to be collected every three weeks, starting next week, as Mid Devon District Councils waste collections change.

The change to a new three-weekly scheme means that food waste will continue to be collected each week, recycling and chargeable garden waste every two weeks and non-recyclable waste every three weeks. More than 95% of households have now been supplied with a 180L wheelie bin or reusable seagull sack – if you haven’t received yours please use the contact details below.

Councillor Colin Slade, Cabinet Member for the Environment and Climate, said:

“After an extensive process getting to the implementation of this new scheme we’re grateful that the time has finally arrived. A lot of hard work has been put in by staff to ensure that this significant transition to three-weekly collection goes smoothly – I’d like to thank all those involved and hope that residents embrace the change and can help to achieve our recycling and climate goals.”

By introducing the Bin-It 123 collection cycle the Council will be able to improve recycling rates, decrease the amount of waste collected and in turn reduce the carbon impact and cut emissions from our collection vehicles. It will also help the Council to meet with Government guidelines to recycle 65% of household waste by 2035 and Devon’s proposed 60% target rate by 2025.
