Extra waste

Show all parts of this guide

2. Additional waste sacks

You can purchase a supply of 10 approved additional waste sacks from the council. These are the only sacks we will collect from beside your bin on collection day.


It costs £44 for a supply of 10 approved additional waste sacks

We will send these to you in the post, so it will take a few days for them to reach you once ordered.

How to use

You can use up to 5 sacks on any one black bin collection day or spread them out throughout the year.  You do not need to book when you will use the sacks.  Fill them up and put them next to your black bin on any scheduled collection day.

You can only order one set of 10 sacks in a 12 month period.

Why we have introduced the charge 

We are committed to reducing the waste we send for disposal and increasing the amount we recycle. 

Over 60% of household waste is recyclable so there should be no need to create extra rubbish. Recycling is the most cost effective route for the tax payer. 

Other options

Additional waste can also be taken to your local recycling centre if booked in advance. Please contact the Devon County Council waste team.
