Christmas Bin Collection Dates

Christmas bin collection dates – check online now

Christmas is a busy enough time in any year and especially so this year with the Covid restrictions to factor in – so remembering any changes to your bin collections is probably not high on your list!

Fortunately High Peak Borough Council’s online bin checker means you don’t need to – you can just enter your postcode or street name and get information about collections for your address including details about collections over the festive period.

Collections of black and brown bins which would normally fall on Christmas Day, Monday 28 December and New Year’s Day have been re-arranged while green-lidded bin collections will be suspended until the New Year.

Although the green-lidded bin will not be collected over Christmas, residents are advised to continue putting all cooked and uncooked food waste (including vegetable peelings and bones) in their bins in preparation for the rounds to begin again.

Councillor Jean Todd, Executive Councillor for Climate Change and the Environment, said: “Christmas is always a busy time and, this year in particular, we all have so much to think about and plan for so we’ve made checking your collections and any Christmas changes simple.

“Our website also has information about what goes in your bins just in case anyone needs a reminder so waste and recycling is one less thing to worry about this Christmas.”

Bins must be presented by 6am on collection day.

There will be no green-lidded bin collections from Monday 21 December to Friday 1 January. Collections will resume from Monday 4 January.

High Peak Borough Council – Media Release – Tier 3

Media Release

1 December 2020

High Peak prepares for very high Covid alert category

Communities and businesses across the High Peak will move into the very high alert Covid category when lockdown 2 ends this week.

From Wednesday 2 December, the Borough joins the rest of Derbyshire in Tier 3 where restrictions mean no household mixing indoors, reducing the number of journeys made and avoiding travel out of the area, and, where possible, working from home. Groups of up to a maximum of six can meet in limited outdoor venues such as parks but people are advised to keep social contact with those not in their household or support bubble, to a minimum.

Hospitality, except take-out and delivery services, and indoor entertainment venues will remain closed but non-essential shops, gyms and personal care services such as hairdressing and beauty salons can re-open.

The decision about which tier to put areas in was made by the Government and it will be reviewed on or around 16 December.

Councillor Anthony Mckeown, Leader of High Peak Borough Council, said: “Tier 3 isn’t where we want to be but the virus is still present in our communities so we must remain vigilant to halt the spread by continuing to do what we’ve been doing for many months now and following the rules.

“We are all now well practised at keeping our distance, washing our hands frequently and wearing a face covering and these simple actions remain our best line of defence along with reducing journeys and minimising social contact. These actions do work and will help continue the reduction in the infection rate across the High Peak.

“We know how hard this is for everyone coming after the second national lockdown but it’s as important as ever that we behave responsibly – especially in the weeks leading up to Christmas when families and friends will be allowed to get together in a limited way. I’d like to offer my sincere thanks to residents and businesses for their continuing commitment to keeping everyone safe.”

Shops and some businesses that had to close during the lockdown can now re-open and the Council is urging people to show their support by shopping locally.

Councillor Damien Greenhalgh, Deputy Leader and Executive Councillor for Regeneration, Tourism and Leisure, said: “Shops and businesses have felt the impact of the Covid restrictions keenly so being able to re-open, particularly in the run-up to Christmas, will be a welcome boost.

“So many of us have really to come value what we have on our local high streets and in our villages this year and shopping locally, and safely, is the best way to show support for local retailers and services.

“So let’s all don our face coverings to buy our seasonal gifts and goodies from our local traders this year and make it a new year’s resolution to shop local and give a much-needed boost the local economy.”

Do the right thing for Derbyshire

do the right thingWe want to say a big thank you to all of you playing your part in helping to stop the spread of coronavirus in Derbyshire and further afield.

It follows a plea from Derbyshire’s Director of Public Health Dean Wallace for residents to stay at home as much as possible during the national lockdown to help protect themselves, their loved ones, the NHS and our communities.

What the new restrictions in place until 2 December mean:

  • Only leave home for food, medical reasons, exercise, education or work – and you must work from home if you can.
  • You musn’t meet socially indoors or outdoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble.
  • You can exercise with one other person who is not in your household. If you do this you must stay 2m apart.
  • You should reduce the number of journeys you make.
  • All non-essential shops will be closed.
  • Pubs, restaurants and bars will be closed.
  • Schools, colleges and universities will remain open.

People who are classed as ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ are also being given extra guidance from Government on what they need to stay safe.

And it’s really important that we all remember to wash your hands, wear a face covering where required and keep a safe distance from others.

We know 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and we’ve all made huge sacrifices over the past few months. Please keep following the rules – our Derbyshire Spirit will get us through this.

Affected Council Services

We’re working hard to continue delivering essential services to Derbyshire residents during the national lockdown.

But some services have closed in line with Government guidance and for the safety of both residents and staff.

You can find the latest information on all our services and how they are being affected by the coronavirus pandemic on our website here 


help if you need it

Help if you need it

County to mark Remembrance Day

We’ll be marking Remembrance Day a bit differently this year to show our support for the armed forces community.

A small socially distanced ceremony will take place on 11 November at 11am, where six representatives from the council will lay wreaths outside County Hall in Matlock.

The event is not open to the public but will be livestreamed on our Facebook page.

We will be following the Remembrance Day guidelines recently published by the Government.

More information on Remembrance Day can be found on the Royal British Legion website.


Community News – Derbyshire County Council

Community News, Derbyshire County Council.


Hello, I’m Dean Wallace and as Derbyshire’s Director of Public Health it’s my job to protect the health and well-being of everyone in the county.

For the past few months, a huge part of mine, and my team’s work, has been to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities.

But despite all of our best efforts, confirmed cases have continued to rise across the county, as they are nationally, resulting in the Government’s new national lockdown.

The new rules, now in force until December 2, mean you should:

  • Stay at home except for specific reasons such as work (if you cannot work from home) education, essential shopping or to care for others
  • Not mix socially with anyone outside of your household or support bubble inside or outside although you are allowed to meet one other person outdoors for exercise
  • Nurseries, schools, colleges and universities remain open
  • Non-essential retail, pubs, bars, restaurants, gyms, hair salons, entertainment and leisure venues should close although take-aways and click-and-collect services can continue

For more details of the restrictions now in place visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november

The rate at which the number of cases continues to rise across Derbyshire is alarming with more people in hospital now than at the peak of the first wave.

I would urge everyone to abide by these new rules. If we don’t, many more people will die.

And if anyone is under the illusion that they’re not at risk, then I’m here to tell them that they’re wrong. We all have a duty to do everything it takes to stop the spread of this highly contagious virus.

I understand another ‘lockdown’ is frustrating but it is necessary to try to stop community transmission. This virus thrives on people being together so for a while we must remain apart to try to stop it in its tracks.

So I implore everyone in Derbyshire to do the right thing to protect themselves, their loved ones and their friends. There has never been a more important time to summon our famous Derbyshire Spirit.

I’d also like to remind everyone to keep doing what they have been doing for the past few months – washing their hands regularly, staying apart and wearing a face covering if they do need to leave their homes for specific reasons.

And if you develop symptoms – a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a change to your taste or smell – you should self-isolate immediately and book a test.

It is vitally important that you do not leave your home while you wait for your results or if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace because you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

If we all act now to lower infection rates across Derbyshire we can perhaps avoid an even longer lockdown and make sure we go back to the lowest possible local alert level so that we can start to do some of the things we love again.

If you’d like more information, to find out how and when to get a test and how to access support visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/coronavirus

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Stay safe.
