Derbyshire Dales residents have been reminded that Christmas and New Year bank holidays mean bin collections for most residents will be one day later than usual over the festive fortnight.

The only exception is the Tuesday collection scheduled for Christmas Day itself, which will take place three days earlier on Saturday 22 December.

As Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday this year, it means the week leading up to Christmas – including Christmas Eve – will be business as usual, apart from the additional Saturday collection for usual Tuesday households on the 22nd.

The District Council’s contractor Serco will not be working Boxing Day but will collect usual Wednesday waste and recycling on Thursday 27 December, working extra days on Saturdays 22 and 29 December and 5 January.

Residents are asked to note that no additional household waste will be collected, so are advised to make sure all their household waste is contained in their grey bin with the lid shut, or, for homes on a sack collection, in four standard sized black sacks.

More information on presenting excess recycling can be found online at

Derbyshire County Council Highways are nearing the point where the TRO that was the subject of an initial public consultation earlier this year will be published again as an amended proposal for public consultation as is required. The full proposed plans can be downloaded below but the formal public consultation will be in the New Year.

There is about to start a targeted consultation to the businesses and residents on Heather Lane to allow everyone on here to comment on the part of the proposal that will directly affect them. The closing date for comments to be returned to DCC will be 12th December.

I have this morning received an email from Ruth George MP following her attendance at the Public Meeting in Hathersage and meeting yesterday with RBS. The email can be found here. I have copied the email to the Parish Councils in the area that I copied previously and also blind copied those people who attended the public meeting and left us their email addresses.

Since my original post I have received two further letters –

from Andrew McCloy Chair of PDNPA (download PDNPA McCloy letter – RBS)

from the Executive Office of Ross McEwan, CEO RBS (download LetterFromRBS-111018)

Thank you for your support.
