Chairman's Welcome

Curbar parish is located in the beautiful Peak District National Park, where panoramic views and settings are valued by residents and visitors alike. .

This website includes a wealth of information about the council and the village, which I hope you find useful. You may also be interested in visiting the recently restored telephone box on Curbar Hill, which includes a map of the village, places of interest and a leaflet rack advising visitors of venues and events in the area.

For walkers, we invite you to take a breather, have refreshments or just admire the scenery on any of the seven benches we provide from the bridge at the bottom of Curbar Hill up to Curbar Edge car park. In order to maintain Curbar's calm and natural beauty, we appreciate when people respect our landscape and countryside, observe speed limits, park sensibly and clean up after their dogs.

I would like to welcome you to the Curbar Parish Council website, which will be updated regularly with news, events and further information of interest.

Christmas and New Year Bin Collections

Christmas and New Year bin collections

Derbyshire Dales residents have been reminded that the Christmas and New Year bank holidays mean some bin collection days change over the festive fortnight.

While Monday and Tuesday collections are unchanged, all other collections will be one day later than usual apart from the Wednesday collection scheduled for Christmas Day itself, which will take place on Saturday 21 December. More »

The District Council's contractor Serco will not be collecting on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day, but will be working extra days on Saturdays 21 & 28 December and 4 January.

Residents are asked to note that no additional household waste will be collected, so are advised to make sure all their household waste is contained in their grey bin with the lid shut, or, for homes on a sack collection, in four standard sized black sacks.

A District Council spokesperson said: "Residents should limit the amount of household waste they put out, but we are always happy to take excess recycling. All we ask is that any additional material is left at the side of recycling containers, making sure it is easily identifiable and suitably contained.

"We recommend using transparent containers, such as stacker boxes, rather than black bags, so we can easily identify the contents, and ask that any excess card, paper and magazines are separated from other excess recycling. Cardboard must be flattened and broken down into smaller pieces no wider than 0.5m to fit in the recycling compartment of our trucks."

More information on presenting excess recycling can be found online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/excessrecycling

Food waste collections will continue to happen weekly and recycling collections fortnightly, and the spokesperson added: "This year local people are recycling an additional 19 tonnes of food waste every month after responding to our appeal to use your food caddies more, and that is great news.

"That's the equivalent of 19 elephants-worth of extra food waste going to a reprocessing facility in Ashbourne monthly and being turned into compost, which is sold back to the public through garden centres, local household waste recycling centres and used in agriculture."

To help prioritise household waste and recycling collections at this busy time of year, all garden waste (green bin/compostable sacks) collections are suspended from Saturday 21 December to Saturday 4 January inclusive.

Every household in the district received a Christmas and New Year collections timetable (please see poster attached) in the October issue of the District Council's Dales Matters publication, and a collection calendar is also available to view or download online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/mycollection » Less
