Christmas & New Year collections

Check to see how your refuse and recycling collections will be affected by the Christmas and New Year holidays...

Please note: Cardboard may be collected separately from the rest of your recycling due to the extra amount put out for collection over the festive period. To check collection dates specifically for your property, you can use our online Collection day look-up.

What can be collected

We can provide a free separate collection to householders for infectious waste, which includes the safe collection and disposal of items such as hypodermic needles and dialysis waste. This service is not available to commercial or clinical properties or service providers.

Please Contact us to arrange either a one-off collection or a regular collection. 

When it's collected

All clinical waste collections in Mid Devon take place weekly on Mondays.

Clinical waste must be made ready for collection by placing it in either sealed yellow clinical waste bags or sharps boxes, which are provided free of charge on an exchange basis.

Our contractor uses an unmarked van so that your collection will remain discreet.

You can also request this service via your medical practitioner, such as your doctor, district nurse, hospital or clinic.

Missed collections

If your collection is missed, please Contact us to let us know so that we can inform our contractor to arrange another collection.
