A Brief Note from "the Editor"

Sorry for the disruption to your Home/Front page. The "publishing office" has been temporarily turned upside down and I am obliged to dismantle all the publishing gear i.e. my desktop computer - normal service should be resumed during the course of Tuesday so please keep mails/advertising requests etc coming in.

Sorted the new waste collections yet?

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.
