Staying safe in hot weather. Find out how to protect yourself and others in the summer months.

We live in a beautiful part of the world and we want to keep it that way for future generations. That is why tackling climate change is one of our main priorities and why we want to achieve a 50% recycling rate by 2030.

As part of that drive you’ll soon receive a new blue bag for your paper recycling and colour coded green and orange stickers to put on your recycling boxes to help you put the right stuff in the right box. Let’s all work together to protect our planet.

Please note though that because the scheme is being rolled out across all of Torbay - some 62,000 households – it will take several weeks so you may not receive yours just yet.
