South Hams District Council and its contractor FCC Environment have made the reluctant decision to keep the suspension of all garden waste collections in place and say residents will be notified when they can start using their brown bins again
South Hams District Council accepts that the waste and recycling collection service FCC Environment currently provides still falls below the standard required to meet the expectations of local residents.
Tennis, cricket, swimming, biking, bowls and football are just some of the sports to have benefitted from contributions made by developers in the South Hams.
Residents can watch or listen into a meeting of South Hams Executive next week. The Council's Executive and officers will be holding FCC Environment to account, as they try to resolve the ongoing waste collection issues.
South Hams District Council is appealing to landlords to come forward now to help meet the acute need for homes for fleeing Afghan workers and local families.
