Other Household Waste to be disposed of will have to be taken to Torr Quarry Recycling Centre off the A381, near Stumpy Cross roundabout, at postcode TQ9 7QQ.
Charges are made on some materials. See link.....
All the above information, and more, can be found on the South Hams District County Council Website. See link......
Did you know you can report fly tipping, dog fouling, overflowing or damaged bins, issues with recycling banks, abandoned cars, dead animals etc all from the "Report It" page on the South Hams website? Use the button on the right to go straight to the page.
Another outlet for unwanted usable items are charity shops of which there are many in Kingsbridge. The Country Hill Animal Shelter is the only one that takes electrical goods and will pick up large items for free.
