Reduction in bin sites in South Derbyshire is not affecting recycling

AN investigation into the amount of recycling sites in South Derbyshire has found that the recently reduced number of facilities is adequate to deal with demand.

Officers at the authority looked into the situation following a move to reduce the amount of sites from 83 to 10, earlier this year, as some councillors had been concerned to make sure that those taken out were the right ones.

There were also fears that the amount of fly-tipping could increase as a result of the reduction.

However, according to a report due to go before the council next week, their fears were unfounded.

Fly-tipping has actually decreased in the district.

The amount of waste left at the side of containers has also reduced.

The report will be considered by the environmental and development services committee at their next meeting on Thursday.
