South Hams District Council released a statement 15 minutes ago, stating: "This morning the Executive of South Hams District Council considered a report, with advice from the Council's Waste Working Group, advising that the authority and FCC Environment have reached mutual agreement to end their contract for waste, recycling, street and toilet cleaning services.
