Residents across Bolsover District are being reminded that their green bin collections are now suspended during the winter months.
The last green bin collection is on Friday 3 December and will then cease until March 2022. Suspension dates differ dependent on where you live in the District, so please refer to bin calendars delivered during November 2021. The service is being suspended as demand from householders significantly falls over the winter period when people are less active in their garden.
There will be no change to the black and burgundy bin collections, but to help households with the extra waste generated over the festive period there will be extra black bin collections during this period.
If residents do have jobs to do around the garden during the winter, this can be stored along with uncooked vegetable peelings in the green bin to be collected in the spring, or taken to their nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre. Residents are also reminded they can put their cooked food leftovers in their black bins during the green bin suspension period.
Staff who normally undertake green bin collections will be used in other areas such as street cleansing and grounds maintenance to enhance those services.
The green bin collections will resume week in March 2022 and for more information on waste and recycling collections please refer to the calendars delivered to your household in November
