High Peak Borough Council

Media Release

End of the road for High Peak recycling banks

The decision has been made as a result of ongoing issues of contamination and improper use of the facilities coupled with an overall drop in use.

Councillor John Haken, Executive Member for Operational Services at High Peak Borough Council, said "Unfortunately, the misuse of the bins and associated flytipping means the cost of continuing to service these facilities is disproportionate to the amount of recyclable material that is being collected."

 "The Council operates an effective recycling and waste collection service for residents from their homes and most of the materials collected from these recycling sites can be recycled in the brown bin, green box and red bag. There has been a general decline in recycling centre use since the introduction of the brown bin service so we have taken the decision that there is no real need for additional facilities."

Last year the Council, recycled 43% of the total waste collected and provisional figures for 2015/16 show this has increased to 48.5%. However, the amount of unrecyclable material from the recycling sites reduces this figure. So removing the sites, and the contaminated material, will increase the overall recycling rate and help meet the 50% Government target.

All residents can continue to recycle a wide range of materials directly from their homes as part of the Council's recycling and waste collection service. For a reminder of what can be recycled please visit www.highpeak.gov.uk/hp/bins

Derbyshire County Council also provides facilities for recycling at their household waste centres in Buxton and Glossop. Residents with large quantities of material, and those who like to recycle cartons (which aren't currently accepted by the Council's contractor), can use these facilities in addition to their containers at home.

The removal of the bins at th sites will start from Monday 18 January. The Council has written to all relevant landowners and put signs on the recycling banks advising users of the changes. It is also working with contractors and the street cleansing team to coordinate bank removal with a final site clear-up.

Residents are urged not to leave bags of materials for recycling on the old sites as it will not be possible to collect them and they will be treated as flytipping which can attract fines of up to £50,000.

The Council is also developing a recycling service for commercial waste customers which is due to start in February.

Councillor Haken added "The recycling bins at the bring-sites were often over-flowing due to incorrect items and bagged waste. An element of this has been identified as commercial waste. Closing these sites will free up collection vehicles enabling us to improve the service we offer traders and increase the amount of tonnage we recycle. It's a decision that makes sense all round."

New Mills World War One Commemoration

The Great War started on 4th August 1914 and ended on 11th November 1918, a total of 52 months. During that period, New Mills, a town with a population of around 8,000, lost 205 men who were killed on active service, a terrible toll of nearly 4 men a month. Of the number of men, physically or mentally injured there is no accurate record, but it would be safe to assume the figure would be far greater. Local men and their families made great sacrifices and the Town Council and its partners will recognise these sacrifices by -

  • Installing notice boards at key points around the parish. The boards will carry a list of casualties and other World War One information and wherever possible on the anniversary of the death of a local serviceman, a biographical piece about the casualty will be posted on the board.
  • To mark the centenary of the Great War, to illustrate its horror and the bravery of the men of both sides who fought in the trenches of Flanders and elsewhere, the machine gun will go on permenant display in the Town Hall foyer.
  • New Mills Town Council have agreed that over and above any national commemoration, the town will honour the sacrifice of those New Mills men who were killed, those men who were wounded and of the local families who suffered and gave so much, by undertaking to continually fly the Union Flag* at the Town Hall from the 4th August 2014 until the 11th November 2018 as a mark of respect and appreciation.
  • As a further mark of respect, all the council's official paper will carry the image of a red poppy, the universally recognised symbol of remembrance, from 4th August 2014 until 11th November 2018.
  • A number of special church services will take place at key moments in the war. The first on Monday 4th August will take place at 7.30pm at St.George's Parish Church and will mark the outbreak of war 100 years ago.

* Except during national days such as St. George's Day, when we would fly the appropriate flag, or in the event of the flag needing to be lowered as a mark of respect.

New Mills is in the High Peak of Derbyshire and has a population of just over 10000.  Local authority services are provided by Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council and New Mills Town Council and part of the town’s 2000 hectares (5000 acres) are within the Peak District National Park.

New Mills is home to various businesses, but most famously Swizzels Matlows located on Albion Road has been producing Love Hearts and Drum Stick Lollies in New Mills since 1940. 

New Mills lies where the rivers Sett and Goyt join to become one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey.  The rivers flow through the town in a spectacular gorge, the Torrs which is the home of the Millennium Walkway and the Archimedean screw.  The Peak Forest Canal also passes through the town.

New Mills was designated as High Peak’s first fairtrade town in 2006. [+ read more...]
