Never has it been so important to try and do our bit to recycle as much as possible. Teignbridge District Council are responsible for collection of household waste. Find out when your bins will be collected and what you can put in them.
There will still be items that can’t be recycled in the blue, black and green boxes. What can you do with them?
The Environment Working Party has been researching ways to recycle additional items close to home. Click on the map below to find out what you can recycle, where.
One new initiative is Terracycle; a company that takes hard-to-recycle food packaging (mostly single-use plastic) and makes them into products. And along the way it helps to make money for local charities. Exminster Primary School has been participating in this scheme for a while now, raising much needed funds for the School. Examples of products that can be recycled by Terracycle in Exminster are crisp packets and cheese packaging.
Where the Terracycle stations located?
For Crisp Packets only
The Royal Oak – The black bin is by the shed in the car park
The Stowey Arms – The blue bin is by the front door
For Cheese Packaging and Crisp Packets
Maxine – The green bin is outside 2 Higher Aboveway
Tracey – The blue bin is outside 43 Old Quarry Drive

What else can be recycled?
Watch this space, more to come.
There was a fantastic response from local individuals and businesses who kindly offered to have the recycle stations at their premises. Thank you for supporting this scheme; great community spirit. Be sure to support them all.
