Recycling roadshow to hit Budleigh

East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) recycling exhibition will be at Budleigh Salterton’s Public Hall on Friday October 15, showcasing to the public how the new system will work.

East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) recycling exhibition will be at the Public Hall from 10am until noon in a bid to showcase how the new system will work.

Manning the roadshows will be EDDC officers and ward members, who will demonstrate the new waste containers and answer questions people may have about the new service.

Councillor David Cox, EDDC’s portfolio holder responsible for the waste and recycling service, said: “We know from experience that any major change like this makes some people concerned and uncomfortable at first. That is why we are putting a lot of effort into providing information leaflets and roadshows so people can find out what they need to know before the change takes place.

“We all need to do as much as we can for the environment. It’s vital that we reduce landfill and increase the number and volume of the materials that we recycle.
