People across Derbyshire are being asked by Derbyshire County Council to rate their recycling centres.

Users are being asked to take part in a survey to highlight what they like and what they think needs improving at sites in Ashbourne, Bolsover, Chesterfield, Glossop, Ilkeston, Loscoe, Newhall (Swadlincote), Northwood (Darley Dale), Buxton (Waterswallows)

Coun John Allsop, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for technology and recycling, said: “We’ve got nine household waste recycling centres across the county and they’re all really popular.

“We try to make sure they’re all clean, tidy, convenient and easy to use with friendly staff on hand to help when you need them.

“But we’re always looking for ways to improve.”

Last year, residents took around 50,600 tonnes of household waste and unwanted goods to the county council’s recycling centres.

Derbyshire residents currently recycle 43.3 per cent of their household waste. The county council aims to increase this to 55 per cent by 2020.
