Bin collections

Council services and bin collections

Bin collections in South Derbyshire are currently being carried out as usual despite the difficulties caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We have redeployed staff and utilised additional vehicles to ensure the collections are able to go ahead and observe social distancing.

Please make sure you leave your bin out for collection by 6am on the usual collection day.

With residents spending more time at home, we are also aware that people are likely to have more waste and recycling.

To avoid spillages please make sure you:

  • close the lids on your bins
  • wherever possible securely bag your black bin waste.

To check when your bin is due to be collected, check the bin collections dates section of our website.

Textile bags

Textile collections suspended.

Our textile recycling processor, The Salvation Army, has advised that they are not currently able to take materials from the Council’s collections. Could residents please not leave any further textiles on the kerbside collection service.

Please store any unwanted textiles until the current COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and the Salvation Army can begin their processing the materials people have donated again.

Saturday freighter service and local household recycling centres

The Saturday freighter service has been suspended until further notice. This is to prevent crowds gathering around the vehicles.

The Bretby Household Waste Recycling Centre operated by Derbyshire County Council has also closed to stop groups gathering.
