The Easter bank holiday weekend is fast approaching and North Devon Council is reminding residents to check when to put their waste and recycling out for collection. 

There will be no waste or recycling collections on Good Friday (April 2). Collections due that day will be made on Saturday, April 3, instead. 

All waste and recycling collections in the week commencing Monday, April 5, will take place one day later that week (running from Tuesday 6 to Saturday, April 10). 

Lots of homes will have more cardboard and foil than usual, thanks to a visit from the Easter bunny. Residents are being asked to dispose of this additional waste by recycling the packaging; flatten cardboard Easter egg boxes and put them in your brown bags, and scrunch up foil before putting it in your recycling box. 

The council is also urging residents to continue separating their recycling into the correct bags and boxes to help the crews work faster and more efficiently. If you need reminding of what goes where you can find can visit the council's webpage
