Due to the upcoming bank holidays, North Devon Council is reminding residents to check their bin collection dates by visiting their website.
There will be no waste or recycling collections on Monday 1 May (early May bank holiday) or Monday 8 May (bank holiday for the Coronation of King Charles III). Instead, these collections will be made one day later on Tuesday 2 May or Tuesday 9 May.
All waste and recycling collections in the week commencing Monday 1 May and Monday 8 May will take place one day later that week, running from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 6 May and from Tuesday 9 May to Saturday 13 May and returning to normal on Monday 15 May.
Service Manager for Waste and Recycling, Paul Burton, says: “This year, we have the bonus of an extra bank holiday as part of the celebrations for the King’s Coronation which means we have two bank holidays in a row. To avoid confusion, we are sticking to our usual bank holiday schedule which simply runs one day later than everyone’s usual collection days.
“If you’re in any doubt about your collection dates over the bank holidays, you can check our website at any time.
Residents are being reminded to display their bins, bags and containers at the kerbside by 6am on the day or evening before their collection to avoid being missed.
For information on what goes in your bin, box and bag, residents can visit the council’s helpful webpage.
To stay up-to-date with council news, residents can follow their social media channels and sign up for their email bulletins.
