Free caddy liners being delivered across Derbyshire Dales

The annual delivery of free food caddy liners has started to all 34,000 homes in the Derbyshire Dales.

Undertaken by a dedicated team - not bin emptying crews - the deliveries will take around three weeks to complete.

Dales residents are being advised that if they haven't received their year's supply of caddy liners by the end of May they should email or contact the District Council's Waste Helpline on 01629 761122 before 30 June.

Caddy liners will not be delivered if requests are made after this date but will be available to buy from the Town Hall in Matlock, from the council's leisure centres in Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth and from Ashbourne Tourist Information Centre, Bakewell Pet Supplies and Eyam Village Post Office.

A District Council spokesperson said:

"Providing our households with free caddy liners encourages them to recycle food waste and is one of the reasons Dales people recycle more than any other area in Derbyshire - around 56% of all waste.

“All food waste can be recycled – cooked and uncooked – and we really do appreciate residents’ contributions to our weekly food waste collections. If anyone is missing a food or kerbside caddy for any reason, these can be ordered online.”

Properties that use black sacks for household waste collections will also receive a free roll of sacks during April and May. The same applies to residents who have subscribed to the council's compostable sacks scheme for garden waste - they will receive a roll of compostable sacks.

Anyone who currently uses black sacks for household waste and hasn't yet subscribed to the compostable sacks scheme for garden waste can complete the online form at or call the Helpline.

If black sacks/compostable sacks have not been delivered by the end of May, residents should contact the District Council before 30 June as sacks will not be delivered after that date.
