If you are an existing customer and you do not wish to receive the garden waste service in 2024, please note that the council does not intend to remove your garden waste bin.
If you do not wish to use the garden waste service and would prefer to compost at home, you can purchase a discounted compost bin through the scheme run by Derbyshire County Council.
Participating in the garden waste service is beneficial to the environment and residents too! The service assists residents to get rid of their garden waste throughout the growing season.
Your garden waste is taken to a site in Derbyshire for composting. Using specialist equipment a waste contractor shreds and grades the garden waste. The shredded garden waste is then shaped into windrows to rot down to produce compost. At the end of the decomposition process the final product is a compost / soil improver that is re-used instead of being disposed of in a landfill site.
Each year, residents in Amber Valley help the council collect around 4,500 to 5,000 tonnes of garden waste.
