Welcome to your community website

Well.... you could be forgiven for feeling you need a degree in waste management but it’s not that bad when you get your head around it.
Black sacks – every other week on a Monday, the next time being Monday 18th June. DON’T PUT ORGANIC WASTE I.E. UNUSED COOKED FOOD IN THE SACKS ANY MORE (if you do, a fortnight’s wait for collection could create nasty niffs).
Green wheelie bins – fortnightly BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE PAID YOUR £35 AND PLACED THE “TDC PAID” STICKER ON IT. Next collection Tuesday 19th June. If you want your green wheelie bin collected and haven’t paid, contact Torridge District Council 01237 428700. No payment, no collection.
Normal recycling (cans, bottles, paper, plastics etc). Weekly as before every Tuesday. The only change is you are asked to put glass in the black bin, not the green one where you put everything else.
The new little green bins – these take your organic waste (so the smelly stuff isn’t lying about for 2 weeks). Weekly on a Tuesday, place out with your other recycling. You can buy liners but using old newspaper as a liner works just as well.

As fuel prices rise then this does significantly reduce the number of miles (and there are a lot of miles - Richard "Haste the Waste" did inform us, I simply can't remember)the waste wagons trundle weekly across Torridge, thus reducing the cost of running the vehicles. There is a possibility that there are less emissions too.

18 months on

A number in the community will remember the frantic fund-raising exercise to purchase and install a bespoke light to enable the Air Ambulance Night-Flying programme. On a cold night in December 2016 a few of us crazy folk stood in the open air and toasted the newly-erected light, which at the time was on what could have been mistaken for a piece of waste land.
No more. Thanks to a few volunteer bodies from this community (same few, again)- and it has to be said that a couple of these bodies went above and beyond the call of community duty – we now have a fully-fledged fenced amenities field which can be enjoyed by people of all ages. There is enough land to host a football or cricket team, but why not hockey too, or another “field sport”? A little bird tells me that the Parish Council are to fund a couple of football nets so that the youngsters (or oldies, let’s not be ageist) can enjoy a good kick about.
The first formal use of the field (at time of going to press) will be the annual Buckland Brewer fete on July 14th. Don’t worry about the Air Ambulance – firstly the priority for this facility is at night (hence Night Flying) and they can land during the day in the playing field at the top of the village, but in addition the central Air Ambulance control room will be notified of the field being in use, and there will be marshals at the fete to enable a safe landing if required.
See “Notice Board” for a few pics of the team and finished product.
