With spring approaching, subscriptions are now open for the West Devon Garden Waste Service.

The service costs £55 for the year. The new subscription year will run from Monday 1 April 2024 until 31 March 2025.

You can sign up on our website.

The annual cost of £55 applies for fortnightly collections, excluding the weeks over the winter period when the service is suspended.

If you sign up, please make sure that your garden waste sacks are put out for us to collect by 7:30 a.m. on your normal collection day.

Happy gardening!

voting changes


If you are voting in any of the upcoming elections, you can now only hand in five postal votes plus your own.

New laws mean you can now only hand deliver six (including your own) postal votes at any election and you need to complete a form or your votes won't be counted.

Also, did you know?

There is now a limit to the amount of people someone can be a proxy for. You can act as a proxy for two people. If you vote on behalf of UK voters who live overseas, you can act as a proxy for up to four people (but only two of those can live in the UK).

Find out more on the Electoral Commission website.
