Serco will restart separate weekly collections of food waste on Derbyshire Dales residents' scheduled collection day from this coming Monday, 29 November.

As you know, separate food waste collections were suspended at the end of July due to the national shortage of HGV drivers impacting the District Council's waste and recycling service. This freed up teams to focus on domestic and recycling waste. More »

As promised, the three month suspension of excess recycling, which started from 30 August, will also be lifted from 29 November. We are appealing though to residents to please be mindful that putting out lots of excess at the first opportunity could lead to trucks filling up more quickly than usual and rounds not being completed.

Residents should please therefore try to limit excess for the time being - see our advice on how to present excess recycling so it is easily identifiable at

We are extending our thanks to residents for their patience and understanding during what we acknowledge has been an extremely testing time for many.

We will closely monitor with Serco the restoration of food waste and excess recycling collections. While Serco have successfully attracted new drivers in recent times and collections have stabilised across the district, we are conscious - with Covid a continuing factor - that any future unplanned staff absences could once again impact the waste and recycling service.

If a food collection is missed residents should report it using the online form at Serco will collect on the property's next scheduled collection day and residents should to bring their caddy back inside the boundary of their property until then. » Less

Statement from DDDC: -

Industrial action called by the GMB Union is scheduled to escalate to strike days for Serco's local union staff tomorrow (Friday) and this coming Monday, 18 October.

Work-to-rule measures put in force this week by the GMB Union have already disrupted some waste and recycling collections.

As more than half of Serco's bin staff here in the Dales are GMB members, the likelihood is that collections on Friday and Monday will be severely impacted More »

Union strike action coupled with sickness absences is likely to reduce the number of available drivers from 22 to just six. Driver numbers are already at a reduced level due to the nationwide HGV shortage.

If the strikes happen it means available crews will focus on household waste collections only, with no available resource to tackle any scheduled recycling or garden waste collections.

We are naturally disappointed that Derbyshire Dales residents should have to suffer further disruptions and urge the GMB Union and Serco to resolve their dispute quickly. » Less
