Rubbish, waste and recycling
We're encouraging people to take their recycling habits one step further during national Recycling Week which runs from 22 to 28 June 2015.
Recycling at home
Most of us are used to recycling things like plastic milk bottles, glass jars and packaging from the kitchen. But what about elsewhere?
There's loads of stuff you can recycle in your bathroom and bedroom too.
Find out what you could be doing and enter our competition to win an indoor recycling bin.
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.
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).
Composting at home
Looking to grow your own fruit and veg? Or give your flower beds a make-over? Why not make your own compost at home by turning your uncooked kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient-rich food for your garden.
Find out more about composting at home.
