Rubbish, waste and recycling

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

Prevent food waste

Our 50 ways to make food go further campaign is helping people to cut their food waste.

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.

For more information about these please contact your local council or find details of your kerbside collections and nearest recycling point at recycle now.
