Bin collections update

TUESDAY 2nd MARCH -  Scheduled household waste and recycling collections are now taking place as normal, with food waste collections continuing to happen fortnightly on your household waste day until our crews are back to full strength. 

Unfortunately we had a vehicle breakdown on Tuesday that meant routes served by the small recycling truck did not get a collection today.  This included some parts of Bakewell and Eyam. Crews will return later this week, so the message is please leave out your bins for collection.

The same issue means that streets served by the small recycling truck will not get a collection on Wednesday. This includes parts of Birchover, Brassington, Elton, Friden, Gratton, Hognaston, Kniveton, Middleton by Youlgrave, Monyash, Offcote, Newton Grange, Pilhough, Tissington, Winster and Youlgrave. Again, please leave out your containers and crews will return as soon as possible.

A reminder that garden waste rounds will restart on 15th March.

Bulky waste collections have now restarted and can be booked using our online form.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in these exceptional times.

Food waste collections

Food waste collections are currently fortnightly on your household waste collection day. 


The usual spring delivery of free biogradable food bags should take place in April/May. If you are running out of the food bags we supply, in the current circumstances we are happy for people to put food waste direct into your kerbside caddy (it would be good if you could wash it out afterwards) or add their kitchen caddy to the kerbside collection. You can also use any biodegradable bag that conforms to BS:EN13432 standard, displaying the logo below.

DEFRA guidance for Derbyshire Dales households self-isolating due to COVID-19

To protect our bin crews and maintain waste collection services here in the Dales, please follow the guidance issued by Government if you are self-isolating or displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
  • *DO*: Double-bag any personal waste (eg used tissues and cleaning cloths) using bin liners or plastic bags, keeping this bag separate from other household waste. Tie securely and wait for at least 72 hours before putting it in your external general waste container (grey bin or black sack).
  • *DO NOT*: Put this waste into your recycling container.
If you use a communal refuse bin which is shared with neighbours, please ensure this guidance is also followed and you double bag your waste, leave it for 72 hours in the room you are self-isolating in and place in the grey general rubbish bin only. Do not put this waste in a blue recycling bin.

It's a good idea to clean frequently touched surfaces in your home with household products such as detergents and bleach, as these are effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces.
