Dales residents’ bin day could be changing

We have received the following news release from Derbyshire Dales District Council;

Bin days for the vast majority of Derbyshire Dales residents will be changing in September to make collections more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Derbyshire Dales District Council has been working with waste collection partner Serco to develop new rounds to reduce the distances bin trucks travel and to accommodate new homes in the area.

A District Council spokesperson said: "The big message to residents is please don't contact us about this yet. The changes will affect 90% of households across the district and all homes will receive a leaflet through the post week commencing 4 September, explaining in detail how the changes could affect them.

"The day changes will be introduced from Monday 18 September and it's important that residents put out their bins by 7am on their new collection day as collection times could change too.

"We want to stress however there is no change to the frequency of collections. Bins will continue to be collected on an alternating weekly basis, while food waste will continue to be collected weekly. Residents who subscribe to our garden waste collections will still have their green-lid bin collected on the same day as their recycling."

Frequently asked questions about the changes can be found on the District Council's website at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/wastechanges-faqs

Jason Hazelwood, Serco's Contract Manager said: "I would like to thank my team for all their help with reviewing the new collection schedules and providing their input and feedback."
