REFUSE COLLECTIONS UPDATE - 23rd APRIL 2020

Good news: All scheduled refuse/food and recycling rounds are again operating to schedule, plus trade and clinical collections.

Garden waste collections remain suspended until further notice.

A reminder Serco can't go back for any recycling collection missed before normal recycling rounds restarted on Wednesday last week, but residents can present additional recycling on their next scheduled collection day – please see the guidance on this on the DDDC website at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/excessrecycling

Sadly some of Serco's bin teams have been on the receiving end of abuse and aggression from residents when they refuse to collect other waste in addition to containers actually scheduled. This is a minority of residents but DDDC have appealed on their social media channels for residents to show their support for the great job these crews are doing in an emergency situation.

As you know, due to the coronavirus outbreak DDDC are now collecting food waste fortnightly on scheduled household waste collection days.

Unfortunately they've had to put the usual spring delivery of free biodegradable caddy liners on hold for the time being. If residents are running out, they can use instead any biodegradable bag that conforms to BS:EN13432 standard displaying the logo.
