Waste collections

From Thursday 5 November 2020 the government has announced a month-long lockdown across the whole of England. The new national lockdown rules will replace the tier 2 high alert measures across the area.

You can find out what restrictions are in place and more about businesses that need to close via gov.uk.


For your safety and the safety of our workers please make sure you follow these guidelines with regards to waste collection

Residents

  • When taking out and bringing in your bins always make sure you clean the handles of the bins.
  • If you live in a household where there has been a confirmed OR suspected case of Coronavirus please make sure personal waste such as used tissues etc is double bagged and stored for a minimum of 3 days before putting it in your bin for collection. Any disposable cleaning cloths used to disinfect your house in this instance should also be included and be double bagged.
  • Only households with confirmed or suspected cases of the virus need to double bag their waste, a single bag is fine for everyone else.
  • Other household waste such as recyclable items and food waste should be disposed of as normal.
  • Empty indoor bins frequently rather than leaving it until the night before collection day to put waste in outside bins.
  • When cleaning you should use your usual household cleaning products, like detergents and bleach, as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces.
  • Clean touched surfaces (such as door handles, handrails, remote controls and table tops) frequently. This is particularly important if you have an older or vulnerable person in the house.
  • Please help keep yourselves and our teams safe by not approaching crews and maintaining social distancing.

All waste collections will carry on as normal until such a time when staffing levels don't allow. Please be assured we are monitoring this very carefully and will do our best to make sure waste is collected as scheduled.

If you need to find out when your normal collection day is, report a missed bin or use our handy what goes in your bin guide visit our Bins and Recycling section - there's lots of useful information and many of your requests can be completed online.


Tips and Recycling Centres

Please visit Derbyshire County Council for information on visiting one of their recycling centres. There is a number plate based entry system in place, allowing cars in on either odd or even dates.
