Residents who live in North Devon will need to put their bins and bags out by 6am on the morning or evening before their collection from now on.
The new, earlier display time, of 6am rather than 7am, is to enable the crews to have more flexible working hours if and when needed.
Lead Member for Environment at North Devon Council, Councillor Netti Pearson says: “We’ve moved the start of our bin rounds forward by an hour so our crews can start their rounds earlier if need be. I’d like to thank everyone in advance for their help and understanding with this, although as many bins go out the night before, most households shouldn’t notice the change.”
Residents are being reminded that they can check when their bin collections are by visiting the council's webpage.
