DERBYSHIRE DALES DISTRICT COUNCIL - WASTE COLLECTIONS UPDATE

When the District Council's new garden waste collection scheme starts next week we're asking subscribers to note that their usual collection day will not change initially. More than 16,500 sign-ups have been recorded to date.

However, please note that as we have a Bank Holiday next week, all waste & recycling collections will happen one day later than usual. There will be no collections on Easter Monday, but Serco's crews will work on Saturday 10 April. So, for example, if a resident's usual garden waste collection day is Tuesday, next week only it will happen one day later, on Wednesday. More »

Crews will also be working this Friday (Good Friday), which will be the last day of any scheduled garden waste collections for households that haven't subscribed to the new scheme. » Less

DERBYSHIRE DALES DISTRICT COUNCIL - WASTE COLLECTIONS UPDATE

EASTER COLLECTIONS

A reminder that our bin crews are working tomorrow (Good Friday) but not Easter Monday. It means all next week's waste & recycling collections will be 1 day later than scheduled and the crews will be working on Saturday 10 April to make up for the bank holiday.

NEW GARDEN WASTE COLLECTION SCHEME

RECYCLING CENTRES

Our recycling centres remain open but only for items that residents absolutely have to get rid of. However, they are increasingly busy.

The centres tend to be quieter on weekdays, especially before 10am and after 4pm. We're encouraging people to come at these times rather than at weekends and to avoid visiting over the Easter holidays if possible.

Social distancing measures are still in place at our sites and staff are unable to help people unload. This slows things up so there may be queueing at the sites. Visitors can help by sorting their waste into the different types (e.g. garden waste, metal, wood, cardboard etc) before they come to the centre to help make their visit as quick as possible.

We're also asking that people avoid queueing on main roads and suggesting that they use their kerbside recycling service at home as much as possible. Composting of garden waste is another way of helping to reduce visits. » Less

DERBYSHIRE DALES DISTRICT COUNCIL – GARDEN WASTE COLLECTIONS RESTART FROM 15TH MARCH

A reminder that garden waste collections, paused due to Covid impacts on collection crews, will restart on your scheduled day from 15 March onwards.


Any households that have filled their garden waste bin in recent weeks and have a resulting backlog of garden waste that needs to be removed can contact us using this form.

Our crews cannot take side waste left in piles or plastic bags, but, as promised, they will take any remaining real Christmas trees left on the edge of your property. More »

The new garden waste collection scheme starts from 5 April, when free collections will end.
