COVID-19: Waste services update

See our Waste services update page for regular updates concerning your bin collections and information on how to safely dispose of waste if a member of your household is infected with COVID-19.

What can I use to put my non-recyclable waste in?


We don't supply free containers for the storage of your non-recyclable rubbish. Instead, please put this out for collection using black sacks, which you can buy at your local supermarket.

If you're worried that your bags could be ripped open by animals, we do accept rubbish stored in your own privately purchased dustbin, providing it's bagged using black sacks and tied at the top so that our collection crews can easily lift it out. We'll accept loose rubbish if it's in a wheeled bin, and so long as it's not brown in colour, (the collection teams will not collect refuse from a brown wheelie bin as these are used for Garden waste).

For further information about this, please see our press release: Mid Devon News - Loose Refuse.

Please note: We can't collect bulky items on your kerbside collection. Please dispose of these by using our Bulky waste service, or by taking them to you nearest recycling centre, see Find a recycling centre.

Can I get a wheelie bin for my black sack waste?
