To purchase a home compost bin: https://getcomposting.com/
SHDC has located compost bins at a good price and a second bin can be purchased at half price, for example share the order with a neighbour.

To sign up for South Hams District Council garden waste collections charged £49/bin /year for the service from spring 2023: https://www.southhams.gov.uk/article/9264/Garden-Waste-Service
Fortnightly collections started 6 March.

For those who decide to not sign up for the service, they can take their garden waste to all three recycling centres in the South Hams. Full details, including opening hours, are available online here: www.devon.gov.uk/wasteandrecycling/centre
