Rubbish, waste and recycling

joseph joseph bin

We're encouraging people to recycle even more whether it be at home, through our household waste recycling centres or even at supermarkets.


Until the end of October we're running a campaign to bust the common myths about recycling with the chance to win a Joseph Joseph recycling bin worth nearly £200. 

Household waste recycling centres

Our household waste recycling centres are for items of waste from households which may be too large or bulky to be taken by your normal kerbside waste collection.

Information is provided on their locations and what items are accepted or not accepted.

All our centres are open from 8.30am until 6pm every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

Local waste and recycling services

Your kerbside collections and local recycling banks are provided by your district or borough council. Waste collected in Derby is managed by Derby City Council (opens in a new window).

For more information about these please contact your local council or find details of your kerbside collections and nearest recycling point at recycle now (opens in a new window).

Find out what happens to your glass, cans and tins and electricals once you send them to be recycled.

Not sure how to reduce, reuse and recycle/compost your waste see our A-Z guide on waste and initiatives on Love Food Hate Waste, furniture reuse, recycling electricals and real nappies.
