Friday 21st September - One of our recycling crews has just been turned around by the Highways Agency on the road from Yarnscombe to Delworthy. No vehicles are being let through. We are aiming to collect from any missed properties on Monday. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Thursday 20th September - Missed green wheelie bin collections in the following areas will be collected tomorrow Friday 21st.

Grange Road and Heathfield, East the Water.

Swanswood Gardens, Westward Ho!

Richmond Park, Northam.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Wednesday 19th September - Northcott Terrace Holsworthy - We apologise but this road was missed on today's collection round but will be collected tomorrow Thursday 20th.

Tuesday 18th September - Restarick Close - East the Water - We were unable to access this road today to collect recycling as a lorry was parked and blocking access. It appears that the lorry is being worked on. We will now attempt to collect this on Wednesday 19th September.

Don't overload your Green Wheelie Bin please! We have witnessed several instances recently where a Green Wheelie Bin has slipped from the loading gear while being emptied into one of our vehicles. This is because the Wheelie Bin has been too heavy and has slipped from the holding mechanism while being emptied and ended up in the back of the truck. This is likely to be due to earth or other dense material being incorrectly deposited into the bins which should only contain things such as grass cuttings, small twigs and branches and other foliage all weighing no more than 100Kgs.

Please follow the guidelines here https://www.torridge.gov.uk/article/16997/Garden-Waste-Service otherwise we will not be able to empty your bin and you may be liable for any damage or injuries caused by these incidents.
