Rubbish, waste and recycling

Going shopping? Remember. Reuse your bag!

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

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.

Annual customer satisfaction survey 

Let us know what you think of your local household waste recycling centre by completing a short online survey. This helps us to identify what you like about the centres and any areas for improvement. The survey is open until 18 December 2015.

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).
