It's time to renew garden waste subscriptions in West Devon

It's the time of year again for West Devon residents to renew their garden waste service to make sure that their grass clippings, weeds and pruned garden waste is collected once a fortnight.

Garden Waste WD

An annual subscription to West Devon Borough Council's Garden Waste Collection Service starts again on 1 April and you are now able to sign up for the service. Each subscription provides four generous reusable sacks, which are collected every fortnight on the same day of the week as your other waste collections.

Cllr Lynn Daniel, West Devon Lead Member for Environment, said: "Not only is our £40 fee for our garden waste service great value for money, it's so convenient for anyone who likes to look after their garden but is unable to home compost. When you're tackling jobs like tending to flowerbeds or simply mowing the lawn, being able to put the waste straight into a sack for collection from outside your home is reassuring and makes those tasks feel so much easier."

All current subscriptions will end on 31 March 2022. If you are an existing subscriber then you will need to renew before 1 April 2022 to be able to carry on using the service without interruption.

If you are new to the Garden Waste Service, we will aim to deliver your sacks within ten working days of signing up. You can begin using the service as soon as you receive them.

The annual cost of £40 applies for fortnightly collections, running from 1 April until 31 March each year, excluding the two weeks over the Christmas period when the service is suspended.
