A SERIES of road-shows, aimed at allaying concerns over major refuse and recycling changes in and around Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary, will take place this month.

Wheelie- bins, "gull sacks" and food-waste containers have been dished out to residents in both towns recently as part of a bid by East Devon District Council to increase its recycling rates and reduce waste going to landfill.

New collection practises, which will see weekly recycling pick-ups, will take place from June.

Advice over the change will be available on the following road-show dates at the following locations:

- Saturday, May 9, Ottery St Mary, Hind Street car park, from 10am to 4pm.

- Monday, May 11, Sidmouth, Ham Car park, 12noon to 8pm.
