Snow update - 31 December

Although our waste & recycling collections crews have been out every day this week, poor road conditions in some areas have hampered progress.

So the big message continues to be leave out / put out your waste & recycling for collection - and we'll get to you as soon as we can.

Riber Castle in the snowWe're keeping to this week's scheduled collection timetable - and extra crews are attempting to catch up on areas missed over recent days.

On Tuesday, for example,we were out in Bakewell, but many side roads remained inaccessible for our collection trucks.

You don't need to report a missed collection, as we have logged properties that require a return visit.

The good news is that a thaw is forecast for New Year's Day, and our crews will be out on Friday and Saturday working hard on the catch up.

  • Confirmation of all your 2015 collection dates and a downloadable calendar is available via our postcode search.
  • Please note that Derbyshire County Council are responsible for gritting roads - and you can find snow updates and gritting information on the homepage of their website

Note there is no Thursday Ashbourne stall market on New Year's Day - this decision was made before the snowfall. Our opening times for New Year's Eve and into the New Year, including our four leisure centres, can be viewed here.
