Delayed waste and recycling collections

Usual waste and recycling round schedules re-start today after the Christmas and New Year bank holiday.

Serco truckCollections over the festive period were disrupted by snow and ice, but we aim to catch up with all missed domestic waste collections by the end of Wednesday this week (7 January).

Missed domestic waste is being collected today by extra Serco crews in Osmaston, Snelston, Wyaston, Ednaston, Sudbury, Bradley, Yeavely, Boylestone, and parts of Hulland Ward, Middleton by Wirksworth and Wirksworth. The domestic waste catch-up will continue on Wednesday again in Wirksworth and in parts of Cromford, Bonsall and Matlock. Some roads have already been done.

Missed recycling collections are due to take place tomorrow (Tuesday 6 January) in Taddington, Tideswell, Wardlow, Bradwell, Litton, Great & Little Hucklow, Grindleford, Hassop, Padleys, Abney, Millers Dale, Rowland, Foolow, Priestcliffe and Wheston.

However, other missed recycling and green collections have now been cancelled to enable us to focus on missed domestic waste. If this cancellation affects you, we will take additional recycling on your next scheduled recycling collection. If your blue bins/bags are already full, you can leave extra recycling in untied plastic bags (not black bin bags please) or suitable plastic containers (please separate paper and cardboard from other recycling materials, ideally bundled up or in boxes).

'Double' recycling collections will take place as scheduled this Friday (9 January) in Stoney Middleton, Curbar, Calver, parts of Darley Dale and Beeley. Because extra collections are anticipated, this might run into Saturday.

'Double' recycling collections will also take place in other missed areas next week - including Bakewell, Parwich, Youlgrave and Brassington.

Our apologies for any inconvenience and, once again, your patience is appreciated.
