West Devon and South Hams Waste Service Update

Services are operating mainly as normal as per last week’s report. Please see attached the collection schedules for over the Easter and May Bank Holidays.

You will recall that we previously reported that the Salvation Army cannot current empty their banks.  Unfortunately, the public are leaving textiles around the banks causing a fly tipping problem as we are not able to reuse or recycle the material.

We advise that members of the public should store their reusable clothes and shoes at home until further notice.   

Kind regards,

Outdoor Spaces Over Easter

Green Spaces

Please use the following guidance in order to stay safe:

  • stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily
  • you should only go outside alone or with members of your own household
  • keep at least two metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • gatherings of more than two in parks or other public spaces have been banned and the police will enforce this
  • if you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air
  • take hygiene precautions when you are outside, and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors
  • if walking your dog in areas used by other people, you should walk your dog on a lead to ensure you can safely keep 2 metres away from others. You can find further guidance for pet owners here
