South Hams District Council Dustbin Collection

Dustbins are generally emptied on Fridays in Avonwick and Wednesdays in North Huish, unless there is a public holiday in the week of collection.

Garden waste - the brown bins - are longer collected free of charge. A new fortnightly subscription service (Thursdays) is charged at £52 - £55 per year. Click here for details.

Full details and guidance about what you can and should not put into the boxes, bag and wheelie bins can be found on the South Hams District Council website: Waste and Recycling
