Christmas and New Year bin collections

Christmas and New Year bin collections

Derbyshire Dales residents have been reminded that Christmas and New Year bank holidays mean bin collections for most residents will be one day later than usual over the festive fortnight.

The only exception is the Tuesday collection scheduled for Christmas Day itself, which will take place three days earlier on Saturday 22 December.

As Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday this year, it means the week leading up to Christmas - including Christmas Eve - will be business as usual, apart from the additional Saturday collection for usual Tuesday households on the 22nd. More »

The District Council's contractor Serco will not be working Boxing Day but will collect usual Wednesday waste and recycling on Thursday 27 December, working extra days on Saturdays 22 and 29 December and 5 January.

Residents are asked to note that no additional household waste will be collected, so are advised to make sure all their household waste is contained in their grey bin with the lid shut, or, for homes on a sack collection, in four standard sized black sacks.

A District Council spokesperson said: "Residents should limit the amount of household waste they put out for landfill, but we are always happy to take excess recycling. All we ask is that any additional material is left at the side of recycling containers, making sure it is easily identifiable and suitably contained.

"We recommend using transparent containers, such as stacker boxes, rather than black bags, so we can easily identify the contents, and ask that any excess card, paper and magazines are separated from other excess recycling. Cardboard must be flattened and broken down into smaller pieces no wider than 0.5m to fit in the recycling compartment of our trucks."

More information on presenting excess recycling can be found online at

Food waste collections will continue to happen weekly and recycling collections fortnightly.

To help prioritise household waste and recycling collections at this busy time of year, all garden waste (green bin/compostable sacks) collections are suspended from Saturday 22 December to Saturday 5 January inclusive.

Every household in the district received a Christmas and New Year collections timetable (please see poster attached) in the October issue of the District Council's Dales Matters publication, and a collection calendar is also available to view or download online at » Less
