DDDC Bins Survey


Your views welcome on whether we should charge for replacement waste & recycling containers

We would like to know whether you support the idea of being charged for replacement waste and recycling containers. Replacing damaged or lost bins currently costs Derbyshire Dales Council Tax payers around £28,000 a year.

We’re now asking for your views in an online survey that also asks whether or not we should end the annual free supply of black sacks and biodegradable garden waste sacks for households that can’t accommodate bins. Providing free sacks currently costs Council Tax payers more than £30,000 a year.

Find out more and go to the online survey

Bin Collection Problems

Thank you to Andrew M who has sent the following information from DDDC:

Dear Parish & Town Councils

I am writing to advise you that we are currently experiencing some difficulties with waste & recycling collections.  Currently due to unforeseen circumstances Serco are experiencing a shortage of resources; therefore some residents maybe experiencing delays with their scheduled collections.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this may be causing and would like to reassure you that we are working with the contractor to resolve the issues as quickly as possible.  There will be collection staff out this Saturday (25th June) clearing some of the missed collections.  The situation will be reviewed on Monday and every effort will be made to clear any outstanding backlog.  There is no change to scheduled collections, residents should still present their containers on collection day but Serco are not always managing to finish the rounds which is impacting on the following days collections.

If a collection is missed residents should report it at or contact the waste helpline 01629 761122 and leave their container (s) at the edge of their property until it has been collected.

Regular updates will be given on the website.

Although outside our area, readers my be interested in this event, that raises money for a service we benefit from, the Mid Derbyshire Association for Mobile Physiotherapy.

SUNDAY 12TH JUNE 2016, 11am – 4pm.

It was twenty years ago that the owners of Culland Hall embarked on creating a memorable garden at their home. Years of dedication have come to fruition to produce an exquisitively painted corner of Derbyshire….walled water gardens edged with cool white allium….hot reds and vibrant oranges ignite the kitchen garden, an old fashioned potager bursting with fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, a woodland walk with an autumnal palette of burnt sienna and ochre, painterley coloured double borders (more…)
