NORTH Devon Council is poised to make big improvements to its refuse collection service from June.First to notice the difference will be the 5,000 households which do not at the moment have a green wheelie bin or a cardboard collection.They will be provided with small kitchen caddies in which to put food waste. They will be emptied into kerbside caddies for weekly collection.This is being made possible by the provision of an in-vessel composter at the Deepmoor tip, which will turn the food waste into compost.These households will also be provided with a brown bag for the collection of flat cardboard.The rest of the households in the district will also receive kitchen caddies for food waste, which may be disposed of weekly in either black or green bins. Brown bags for cardboard will also be distributed.The council is determined to achieve a 50 per cent recycling rate by next year, rising eventually to 60 per cent.
