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 and to provide additional support for those affected.

The wheeled bin should only be used for items that cannot be recycled or composted. Collections are fortnightly.

Wheeled bins must be out for collection on the edge of your property by 6am on your collection day.

Over 50% of what Torbay residents put into their wheeled bins is recyclable using the current services, with food waste making up 20% of the total weight sent for disposal.

  • Items that can’t be recycled
  • Polystyrene
  • Black plastics
  • Pet Litter/waste
  • Nappies and hygiene waste
  • Plastic wrapping e.g. cling film and plastic bags
  • Wrapped, broken glass
