Bin collections update

WEDNESDAY 24 FEBRUARY: All scheduled household waste and recycling collections were due to take place today, with food waste collections continuing to happen fortnightly on your household waste day until our crews are back to full strength.

Garden and bulky waste rounds remain suspended for the time being to enable the reduced crews to focus on priority collections.

As always, your patience and understanding is very much appreciated during the Covid impacts on our crews.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in these exceptional times.

Food waste collections

Food waste collections aree currerntly fortnightly on your household waste collection day. 

The usual spring delivery of free biogradable food bags should take place in April/May. If you are running out of the food bags we supply, in the current circumstances we are happy for people to put food waste direct into your kerbside caddy (it would be good if you could wash it out afterwards) or add their kitchen caddy to the kerbside collection. You can also use any biodegradable bag that conforms to BS:EN13432 standard, displaying the logo below.

DEFRA guidance for Derbyshire Dales households self-isolating due to COVID-19

To protect our bin crews and maintain waste collection services here in the Dales, please follow the guidance issued by Government if you are self-isolating or displaying symptoms of coronavirus.

  • *DO*: Double-bag any personal waste (eg used tissues and cleaning cloths) using bin liners or plastic bags, keeping this bag separate from other household waste. Tie securely and wait for at least 72 hours before putting it in your external general waste container (grey bin or black sack).
  • *DO NOT*: Put this waste into your recycling container.
If you use a communal refuse bin which is shared with neighbours, please ensure this guidance is also followed and you double bag your waste, leave it for 72 hours in the room you are self-isolating in and place in the grey general rubbish bin only. Do not put this waste in a blue recycling bin.

It's a good idea to clean frequently touched surfaces in your home with household products such as detergents and bleach, as these are effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces.
