We have had to change the way that some of our services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Thanks to the fantastic effort of Torbay residents, 42% of the waste collected was recycled last year. Sadly we are still sending over half of our waste to the waste to energy plant, costing us over £3 million.
By tackling our waste through reducing, reusing and recycling, we can all do our bit to help conserve natural resources, reduce the impacts of climate change and save money that can be put towards providing other vital services in Torbay.
