Take advantage of our buy-one-get-one-free caddy liner promotion during December!
As part of our ongoing promotion to encourage people to recycle more of their food waste, especially over the festive period, until 31 December you get twice as many caddy liners for your money if purchased from the District Council's leisure centres in Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth. The same offer applies at Matlock Town Hall, but it ends there on 22 December due to the Christmas Closure period.
We deliver a free supply of caddy liners to every household in the Dales in April each year, but some residents do run out, which is why we sell additional rolls of 52 bags at £2 a time. Only use the caddy liners provided, which meet specific requirements and can be handled by the re-processing plant. We cannot collect liners purchased from shopping outlets or online as these could contaminate the load and result in waste being rejected and disposed of at landfill.
Remember, you can recycle your Christmas dinner leftovers including bones and carcasses. No amount of food waste is too small and you can start by recycling tea bags and coffee grounds. Some of the other food waste items often forgotten are also cheese, egg shells and cooked food scrapings.
Food waste collections will continue weekly over the Christmas period.
