Please ensure that you reduce and reuse waste as much as possible and only buy what you need. Have a look at these top tips to reduce waste at home and you might save money at the same time.

Recycling

Devon is one of the top performers in the country when it comes to recycling, consistently being within the top 5 and even number 1 in 2010/11! This is great news; however there is still more work to be done to get Devon back to the top!

What can you do?

Please make sure that you're recycling everything you can either at home - check your recycling collection info here household collections or at your local recycling centre Recycling Centres.

Thank you for helping to get Devon to number one
