Key decisions on new waste and recycling contract
10 December 2019. District councillors will be asked next week to approve that current contractor Serco continues to deliver the Derbyshire Dales’ waste and recycling contract from August 2020.
The special meeting on 18 December, to be broadcast live on our YouTube channel, will also be asked to approve a new charge for collecting garden waste, to be introduced in April 2021.
The proposed cost is £50 per bin per year, with an early bird offer of £35 on purchases made before 31 January 2021.
Local councils do not have a legal responsibility to collect garden waste and residents will have to opt in to the scheme.
Until April 2021, the service will continue to be free of charge for all 34,000 households in the Derbyshire Dales.
