Residents in North Devon and Torridge have been reminded to keep tabs on changes to their waste and recycling collections over the festive period. 

Neither council will collect green garden waste between December 21 and January 1. 

The full collection details are available on both council websites – see below – but in both cases there will be normal collections right up until Christmas Eve.

There is of course a break for Christmas Day, Boxing Day ad the weekend, but collections resume for both on Tuesday, December 28 after the bank holiday. 

It means there are relatively few disruptions to the service this year, compared with previous years to the days of Christmas.
