My garden waste

Subscribe here

From 1 April 2021 Derbyshire Dales residents need to opt in to our new garden waste subscription scheme.

Free garden waste collections will end on 31 March 2021 and we explain the reasons for reluctantly taking this decision in our FAQs.

While we aren’t legally obliged to provide a garden waste collection service, we want to continue to do this for the benefit of the people of the Derbyshire Dales - that’s why we are launching the new service from 1 April 2021.

If you subscribe before 31 January 2021 the cost is £35 for the year (the equivalent of less than 68p a week).

  • The easiest, quickest and most secure way to subscribe to the garden waste scheme is by completing this webform.

How does the scheme work?

On joining the garden waste scheme we will send you a tamper-proof bin sticker. A collection calendar will follow by email and your calendar can also be accessed if you have signed up to the My Account feature here on our website.

Your garden waste will be collected fortnightly from the start of April to the end of March the following year.

Leave your current Derbyshire Dales garden bin out on the edge of your property in plain sight by 7am on your collection day and we’ll collect the waste and take it to a local reprocessing facility, where it is turned into compost for farms and gardens.

If you are currently on a sack collection you will receive 126 colour-coded sacks for the year.
