Then latest news on bin collections can be found  here

From DDDC-
Recycling backlog
We are very conscious that some residents where recycling collections have been missed this week and last are getting concerned about when we might have capacity to react to the backlog as the coronavirus crisis continues to impact on this service.

Please be aware that a contingency plan will be announced very soon that seeks to address how recycling collections will happen during this emergency situation.

In the meantime our appeal to households is that you stockpile any recycling rather than being tempted to burn it – which is bad for the environment – or to dispose of it in any other way.

Your continued patience and understanding in these exceptional times is much appreciated.

Bin collections update – Wednesday 1 April
The bins situation today is that household waste collections continue as scheduled, but there are no garden rounds, food is being collected on the grey bin/black sack rounds and only one of the usual five recycling crews is out collecting.

Household waste collections remain a priority for our reduced crews.

More about today’s scheduled recycling rounds >


Looking at the website it looks like we won’t get a collection today

Food Waste Reminder

We have received the following from DDDC:

Food waste

A reminder that due to the coronavirus outbreak we are now collecting your food waste *fortnightly* on your scheduled household waste collection day.

If you are running out of the biodegradable food caddy liners we supply, you can use instead any biodegradable bag that conforms to BS:EN13432 standard displaying the logo in the middle of the photo shown.

In the current circumstances we are also happy for you to put food waste direct into your kerbside caddy (it may need washing out afterwards) or add your kitchen caddy to your kerbside collection.

Thank you.

Acute staffing issues caused by the coronavirus outbreak means bin collections in the Derbyshire Dales have been further impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

Derbyshire Dales District Council announced on Tuesday that staff absences due to self-isolation measures meant garden waste collections would be suspended from Friday – but green waste is now suspended with immediate effect.

Some scheduled recycling collections also didn’t happen on Wednesday as bin crews prioritised general household waste collections.

The District Council does not have the resources to return for any garden and food waste collections missed to date this week.

Food waste will now be collected fortnightly – with household waste – rather than weekly.

Dales residents are being warned to expect further disruptions as the council’s contractor Serco have adopted the Government’s social distancing guidelines, meaning two rather than the usual three staff on each truck.

A full list of service changes due to the coronavirus outbreak is being updated regularly at

Lestor Lowe Village Delivery Update

The delivery from Lestor Lowe will take place on Tuesday/Wednesday. As the delivery charge will be £18 we need enough people on the order to spread the charge. If you can confirm whether or not you want to be part of it by Thursday evening this will give me enough time to confirm to everyone that it is going ahead. The order has to be in on Friday.

You will need to ring and place your order with LL, either paying by card or adding it to your account. Please tell LL that you want to be part of the Parwich special delivery. The delivery charge will be placed on my account and the delivery will come to Nethergreen Farm. When you collect your order from here you can pay me your proportion of the delivery charge.
