Tor2 has advised Torbay residents to continue to leave their recycling out for collection as the company admits they are running a day behind.

The increase in recycling has been caused due to the Christmas and New Year holiday, along side greater amounts of recyclable waste that we all experience during the festive period.

Tor2 have announced that there is a plan in place and in order for the company to catch up with demands they will be working over the weekend.

Despite this people are advised to leave their recycling out as normal so that it can be collected and recycled accordingly.

Over the festive period Tor2 operated a revised time table for Christmas waste recycling.

A series of collection points across Torbay will be open for Christmas Tree recycling.

In Torquay you can take your unwanted tree to the Lymington Road Coach Station Car park.

In Paignton you can take it directly to HWRC Recycling Centre, Tor Park Road.

Or if you live in Brixham you all be able to drop it off at the Brixham College, Higher Ranscombe Road.

Please Note: Collection points for the Christmas trees will not be open until 9am on the 6th January 2019 and will close again at 1pm on the same day.

If you miss the 6th January, fear not, you can still recycle your Christmas tree on the 13th January 2019 at the same points and times.

If you don’t want to wait give Tor2 call who will be happy to collect your tree for a small £5.00.

Remember do not dispose of your tree prior to the 6th January or after the 13th January as this will be seen as fly tipping.
