Garden waste

Composting waste sites at Ashley on the Tiverton/Bickleigh road, and at Brushford - both will also take other types of materials for recycling.

In your garden: Nearly a third of Devon dustbin waste is compostable - so if you have a garden, get a compost bin or join brown bin system.

Do you have a compost bin?

Do you catch rainwater for use in the garden?

Do you do your watering in the early morning or evening to reduce evaporation?

Do you mulch your plants to conserve water in the soil?

Do you take green rubbish to the recycling facilities?
