Waste Collection Update 30th July 2021
Please see below the latest update from Derbyshire Dales District Council:-
"For your information, please note that Serco have some catch-up crews operating tomorrow (Saturday) ahead of the major sweep-up of missed collections starting on Monday, so please encourage residents to leave out any containers.
The continuing suspension of food waste collections has enabled all scheduled collection rounds to be tackled today, but, as you know, the sheer volume of waste and recycling currently being collected means trucks fill up quickly, so unfortunately some rounds may not be completed." More »
After discussing this with DDDC they have requested that you leave out your blue or grey bins on Saturday 31st July 2021 if they were not collected on the last scheduled collection dates in case tomorrow's crews are able to get into your area. » Less

Further communication from Derbyshire Dales District Council 29th July 2021
GARDEN WASTE COLLECTIONS SUSPENDED FROM 2ND AUGUST FOR 4 WEEKS
"Our sincere apologies. However, this will enable crews to catch up with all recent missed household waste & recycling collections (including excess recycling).
Please leave out missed containers for collection. Note: Collections could happen as early as 7am.
Food Waste Collections are also temporarily suspended. Please mix food waste in your household waste container. To help prevent animals ripping open sacks in search of food waste, residents on sack rounds can put your usual food caddy out alongside your refuse sacks if you wish, but food inside the caddy does need to be contained within a sealed bag"

"To enable Derbyshire Dales District Council to catch up on all missed waste and recycling collections to date - including excess recycling - councillors have agreed to suspend from this coming Monday (2 August) garden waste collections for a period of 4 weeks.
The Council will be contacting all its garden waste subscribers direct to confirm this narrow decision at an extraordinary council meeting on 27 July and to offer them, as recompense, a £15 discount of next year's subscription price, which had been set at £50. Any new subscribers will pay the full amount. More »
Suspending garden waste collections for a maximum of 4 weeks (the equivalent of 2 collections) will release 5 drivers to focus instead on catching up with missed collections of household waste and recycling.
The meeting also agreed to the cost of leasing an additional collection vehicle to help cater for an increasing number of subscriptions to the garden waste collection service until 31 March 2022.
To help our contractor attract new drivers in a competitive market caused by a UK-wide shortage, councillors also narrowly agreed to share equally with Serco until March next year the cost of an uplift in wages for drivers on Derbyshire Dales rounds.
The full debate and decisions can be viewed again on our YouTube channel.
In the meantime, as a temporary measure, we're continuing to ask residents to mix food waste in their usual household waste (grey) bin - or sacks (if they are not on a bins round).
To help prevent animals ripping open sacks in search of food waste, residents on sack rounds can put their usual food caddy out alongside their refuse sacks if they wish, but food inside the caddy does need to be contained within a sealed bag."
