Green waste service pilot in Autumn
A pilot for a new green waste recycling service in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton will be run in September and October.
For a small charge, Otter Rotters will collect garden waste, compost it, and sell it back to residents with profits then ploughed back into the community and schools for help with their recycling and composting efforts.
Each householder who signs on will buy a large reusable ‘garden’ bag for a one-off price of �4.
Then, for each bag of waste collected, a �1.50 ‘tag’ would need to be purchased – the full bag would then be collected and composted.
Only fuel costs would be charged for schools and voluntary groups. Sacks of compost can then be bought for �3.50 each or �12 for four.

Dave Blackwell of Otter Rotters said: “Although we have not had as much interest as we had hoped for, we have decided to run a pilot in September and October.
“Outlets for our bags and tags will be Daff-O-Dils in Church Street, Exmouth, the bnatural health store in the Strand, Exmouth, and the Garden Shop in Station Road, Budleigh.”
