What area do you cover?

Torbay, including Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. South Hams, including Dartmouth, Kingswear and Totnes. We also cover Kingsbridge, Salcombe and surrounding areas.

What can I put in the bags?

Green waste only please, nothing else.

Will my bags be collected at a regular time on my collection day?

No, they could be collected at any time during the day or evening, depending on how many calls we have. Please do not assume a regular time.

What if I have more garden waste than I can fit in my bags?

Just place it in a tidy pile next to your bags. The driver will collect this and record an estimate of the bag equivalent.

How many bags do I need?

This will depend on your circumstances and garden. As a guide, a modest detached house with a garden usually manages with 3 bags but it is up to you to decide. You can always buy more at a later date.

Do I need to let you know how many bags I have?

No we can collect any quantity.

What if I cannot find my bags or ticket?

Our driver will always return your bags and attached scan tickets to the place he found them. Unfortunaely we cannot be responsible for them after that.
