Recycling Update from DDDC

Recycling collections

Currently some scheduled recycling collections are happening and others aren't. We usually have five recycling crews collecting daily, but that number is currently reduced to one or two. This is to enable our reduced crews to focus on scheduled houshold waste collections. We are asking residents please to stockpile recycling as best they can. Derbyshire County Council has closed all its household waste recycling centres in line with Government coronavirus guidance.

Please do not report any missed recycling collections for the time being. Thank you.

Recycling - squash and flatten everything!

Here's some advice if you are having to stockpile recycled material right now if you need to because of reduced collections during the coronavirus outbreak.

Your first obstacle in a small space is AIR! Make sure you squash all the air out. Tetra Pak products are easy to flatten out. Simply wash and dry the inside lining, put the plastic cap back on and place it in your recycling container.

Crush and squash tins and cans - and the same goes for milk and water bottles. Stack paper as neatly as possible and flatten cereal and washing powder boxes.

Please note that washing your containers make it easier and more hygienic to stockpile recycling around the house.
