Second homes and holiday homes

Holiday home

Information about the best way to manage your waste responsibly and the options available to you if you have a second home or holiday property in the South Hams.

If you're staying in the South Hams and sharing our beautiful environment, the waste you produce is your responsibility until it is collected.

You must ensure that it is stored safely and securely during your stay.

Please visit the 'find my collection day' area of this website to find your next collection day if your home is residential.

Is your collection day not suitable?

You can arrange in advance to take a limited amount of waste to Torr Quarry recycling centre. Call Devon County Council to book this service on 0345 155 1010.

Is your property let for self-catering holiday accommodation?

Contact South Hams District Council Commercial Waste service on 01803 861256 to arrange collections.
