Councillor Joan Dixon, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, said: “The county council is facing difficult financial times and needs to save £157 million over the next five years.

“Last year the county council had to pay £12.3 million in landfill tax.

“If we all reduce, reuse and recycle more, less will be sent to landfill which will help to make some of the financial savings needed.

“That’s why the county council is looking for ways to help improve our recycling centres and talk to people about what we can do to help them recycle more.”
