Bin collections update

Issued Friday 2 March at 16:20:

The catch-up of missed waste & recycling collections will start tomorrow (Saturday 3 March), assuming that road conditions have improved.

Tomorrow crews will start to collect grey bins/blacks sacks/ food waste and recycling that have been missed this week – starting with Wednesday’s outstanding collections and then Thursday’s and Friday’s.

On Monday scheduled grey bin/black sack/food and recycling collections are due to take place.

Food waste missed on recycling day this week will be collected next week as scheduled with grey bin/black sacks.

To enable our crews to focus on missed collections and scheduled grey bin/black sack/food and recycling collections, we are suspending all garden waste collections on Monday and Tuesday. Food waste collections that are collected by the same truck as garden waste are also suspended on Monday and Tuesday. We may have to suspend the collection of garden waste beyond Tuesday for the remainder of the week dependent on the success of the catch-up.

Please note also that crews will not be returning for any garden waste collections that have been missed this week. We aim to collect these on your next scheduled garden waste collection date.

We appreciate this isn’t a straightforward plan, and, to ensure we don’t miss you, it makes sense for you to leave out all missed containers from this week together with next week’s scheduled containers (apart from garden waste).

Thank you!

Thank you for subscribing to the District Council’s bin collection updates – and for being the top recyclers in Derbyshire!

Can we make our annual plea to ask householders to make sure their hedges and bushes are trimmed back to within their boundary line, so they do not encroach on bordering paths and roads?
Hedges trimmed now will soon get new growth to fill in bare patches that may be left after cutting

11p a week increase proposed for Dales services

Derbyshire Dales District Council proposes to increase its share of Council Tax bills by 2.99%, which would mean Dales households paying on average 11p more a week for District Council services in 2018/19.

The District Council, which collects Council Tax on behalf of all local authorities but only spends 12% of the total (Derbyshire County Council’s share is 71%), will be explaining at a series of community forums how we propose to provide services to local people at an average cost of just 56p a day – despite the continuing squeeze on finances.

Tonight’s forum at Matlock Town Hall starts at 7pm, and will be broadcast live on our YouTube channel.
