New laws for Exmouth's recycling centre

EXMOUTH'S Recycling Centre will be one of the few places to accept plasterboard disposal from next month.

Devon County Council is issuing advice to householders about new restrictions on the disposal of plasterboard at its network of Recycling Centres and Rural Skip sites.

From Wednesday, April 1, a revised Environment Agency policy comes into force which will prevent plasterboard from being landfilled with general waste and instead it will have to be recycled.

Due to this ban on disposing plasterboard to landfill, separate collection facilities are being established at the network of Recycling Centres to enable it to be recycled. However, only small quantities will be accepted at Knowle Recycling centre, two sheets or two small 'rubble' sacks of plasterboard will be accepted per household per month.

Householders producing quantities in excess of this amount are advised to hire a skip or arrange for alternative, private disposal.

For further information please call Devon County Council on (0845)1551010.
