New service will cost £48 a year – less than £2 per collection
East Devon is moving forward with plans to introduce a district-wide chargeable green waste collection service this year.
The council is working with partners SUEZ UK to provide a fortnightly chargeable green waste collection service for its residents who have been asking for a reliable district-wide service of this kind for some time.
The council has now approved the proposals and the service is expected to be introduced in Spring 2018.
Many councils across the country successfully operate a chargeable green waste collection service and East Devon is keen to continue to further improve and modernise its recycling and waste service by introducing this new initiative.
The new service will cost £48 a year, with an introductory offer of a free 240ltr green bin. For less than £2 per collection, green waste will be collected from the kerbside of residents’ homes - easy, reliable, recycled. The service is not being subsidised by the council tax payer.
If you would like to register your interest in the service, please visit www.eastdevon.gov.uk/green or call East Devon’s customer services on 01395 571515. The council will then contact residents nearer the time with details on how to subscribe.
