Help is available for people across the county if they are:

  • Self-isolating because either themselves or a member of the household is at risk
  • Struggling to meet basic needs because of financial, social or health restrictions
  • Pregnant
  • Have underlying health conditions

Thanks to all our staff who have offered to help this massive community effort. If you'd like to offer practical help as a volunteer you can do this by registering online www.derbyshire.gov.uk/givehelp and please ensure you complete the volunteer and skills survey which will enable us to identify those who could offer help as part of their role. » Less

Green Bin Suspension - From today (30/03/20), green bin collections will be suspended. This is to allow us to prioritise more resource on emptying our black bins and mitigate the increasing risk of Coronavirus impact on our staff. You are advised to put food waste in your black bins during this temporary suspension period. We also ask that you present your black and burgundy bins for collection by no later than 6am on collection day as timings of collections are likely to change (i.e. when the vehicle normally arrives on streets) given we have placed extra resource in our black bin rounds. Please continue to recycle as much waste as possible through your burgundy bins.
