Kerbside Box Collections
We ask our local residents to continue to re-cycle by using the kerbside boxes provided by TDC. Additional recycling boxes can be supplied free of charge if residents find that they do not have enough capacity. These can be requested online via our web form.
Should residents have too much waste to go in the kerbside collection boxes, the nearest Recycling bank is at Tesco, Newton Road, Kingsteignton. Or for alternative sites please click here.
Textile collections from the kerbside are available, so residents are now able to put out textiles in a standard sized carrier bag only, (not a black bag or charity bag), for collection alongside your recycling boxes.
There is limited space on the recycling lorries for textiles, so if yours doesn't get collected, please put it out again the following week or alternatively take it to your nearest recycling bank.

Updated 20/7/2020 - To users of Newton Abbot's recycling centre
Since we've reopened our recycling centres and adopted all the steps necessary for us to reopen safely, including social distancing and restricting the number of vehicles able to be on site, some of our centres have experienced lengthy queuing.
One such centre is our Brunel Road recycling centre in Newton Abbot. Queues there in particular are sometimes long and problematic.
So from Monday 27 July, we will be asking users of the Brunel Road Recycling Centre in Newton Abbot to show that they live in the Devon County Council area
. Residents who live outside the Devon County Council area (for example Torbay or Plymouth) should take their household waste to their nearest recycling centre in their local authority area.
That way, we might ease some of the queuing.
