Rubbish Deposit £25.00

Torbay council have recently introduced a new rubbish scheme which involves extensive and careful recycling, because of this we have introduced and implemented a system where guests are asked to take their rubbish away with them at the end of their holiday and it can be recycled at your home in the usual manner. The problem we have faced is that all councils across the country have different rules as to what can be recycled and the rules in Torbay often differ from what holiday makers are used to we are then exposed to £1000 fine if it is not recycled correctly. When paying the final instalment of your holiday 4 weeks prior to the holiday an additional deposit of £25.00 will need to be paid which is a (Rubbish deposit) after your holiday if you have removed all of your rubbish the £25.00 is refundable in the manner in which it was paid, i.e cheque or bank transfer.

Damage Deposit of £100 refundable after the stay if no damage is caused.
