All 19 of Devon County Council’s recycling centres have been closed until further notice effective immediately.
It follows the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday night regarding the temporary restrictions on movement being put in place as a result of Covid-19.
During this time if you have waste you can:
• Use existing kerbside collection services for recycling any materials that can be accepted in that collection
• Home compost
• Leave grass cuttings on the lawn where they will mulch down to provide nutrients
• Hire a skip/Hippo bag or similar
• Avoid projects that generate waste (eg postpone clearing out your garage/shed or doing your garden make-over)
• Store your waste at home until the restrictions are lifted
