Our recycling policy
Much as it seems a good idea to have separate recycling and mixed rubbish bins onsite for you to use, in practice not every visitor is conscientious about which bins they use, and as a result the recyclable waste gets contaminated. Instead our waste contractor, Devon Contract Waste, sorts all the waste at their depot.
