Unfortunately, due to operational issues, the Councils garden waste collection service has had to be suspended with immediate effect. More »
If your bin is currently presented, please return it to your property and we will issue further information as soon as we know when the service will resume.
Staffing shortages have caused delays to all services and this has now been compounded by the closure of the main waste transfer station used by the Council.
In order to minimise any further disruption to refuse and recycling collections, we have made the difficult decision to immediately suspend the garden waste service and redirect this resource onto the statutory services.
We will reinstate the garden waste service as soon as we are able and apologise for the inconvenience caused. » Less

Refills on the Road is a mobile zero waste shop selling store cupboard foods, cleaning products, and toiletries/household items without the plastic packaging. More »
Founded in 2019, the van travels to locations around Derbyshire filling customers' containers with a variety of goodies. In this time, thousands of plastic bottles have been reused instead of ending up in landfill or being downcycled. Customers have also avoided lots of plastic waste from unnecessary food packaging.
The world's plastic pollution problem is so bad, scientists estimate we might all be ingesting up to a credit card's weight in microplastics each week.
If you want to reduce your reliance on single-use plastics and help fight against plastic pollution, bring your containers to Refills on the Road. You will find the van alongside the Repair cafe from 10am - 12pm on Saturday 31st July. » Less
