Thank you to everyone who has taken part in this year’s Garden Recycling Scheme. Almost 13,500 households in Derby have enjoyed fortnightly garden waste collections with our service this year.

With your help, we have been able to collect over 3,800 tonnes of leaves, flowers, grass and other garden waste. This goes to our recycling contractors, Vital Earth, where it is processed and turned into compost.

If you are part of the Scheme this year, please note that you have two collections remaining.

Your final brown bin collection will take place between Tuesday 7th and Friday 17th November.

If you would like to check the exact date of your collection, please use our bin day look-up tool.

We will be opening registration for the 2018 service in the new year. Look out for more information on our website in January. We look forward to seeing you again next spring.
