Views sought on waste services

Views sought on waste services

Colin Swindell, District Councillor, writes…

Derbyshire Dales District Council is asking local residents for their views on their waste and recycling collection services to help shape the future of the service.

Its hard to believe that it was 6 years ago that Serco took over the refuse collections and the problems that arose across the Dales in the months after. This contract will come to an end in 2020 and the council are now starting the process of looking for a new service provider. As a result, the entire waste collection service is under review and the council are looking at what currently works, what needs to change and how savings can be made.

The council has launched an online survey that asks residents about their experiences of their waste and recycling service. I want to encourage as many people as possible to take part. You can find the survey on the council website at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk or visiting the link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/M8CGFD6

If you are not able to access the survey online, please contact me. If you wish to make your views known to me personally, please contact me using the details below.

I want to stress that this is only a survey and no decisions have been made about the future of waste collection services. It is still very early days in the tendering process and councillors, including myself, will be scrutinising it closely to get the best deal possible for residents – both in the service they receive and value for money.

I have concerns about the survey as it currently stands. It does not allow people to opt for keeping the frequency of collections as they are. I will be raising this with the Council.
