Bulk Waste Collection

The Saturday morning community waste collection service has now ceased.

This Saturday service has been withdrawn by Derbyshire Dales District Council after you told them during consultations that you wanted to see more waste recycled and because the Derbyshire Dales has a brand new household waste recycling centre which opened on Friday 12 August 2011 at Harrison Way, Northwood, Darley Dale (DE4 2LF) in addition to similar centres serving the Dales at:
  • Mayfield Road, Ashbourne (DE6 2BJ)
  • Stonegravels, Chesterfield (S41 7LF)
  • Waterswallows, Buxton (SK17 7BJ)

For further information on these Household Waste Recycling Centres please visit the Derbyshire County Council website as they are responsible for the Centres.

Bulky items of waste can be taken to these centres which are open 7 days a week from 0830 - 1800 (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day) or you can use the bulky waste collection service for a small charge.

On average 60% of the waste delivered to these centres is recycled, whereas all the waste from the Saturday lorry collections goes to landfill.

The District Council also supports recycling opportunities created by organisations such as Freecycle, a non-profit movement that helps to keep unwanted good items out of landfills.

Buses

The Arriva buses travel through the village. For more information phone the Traveline Tel: 0871 200 22 33 or look at the Derbyshire Public Transport Web

Doveridge Primary School

School picture 1 Doveridge Primary School is a small school having a family atmosphere where children are encouraged to share and care for each other. The school is situated in beautiful grounds that include a hard playing area, an enclosed area for the youngest children, a field large enough for a football pitch, and a conservation area that has a small copse and a pond. We care for children from the age of four and most children transfer to nearby middle schools when they are nine. There are plans to extend the school to accommodate children until they are eleven, when they will be eligible to transfer to Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Ashbourne.

School picture 2 We are fortunate to be able to teach most of the children in small classes of about twenty. Teaching is based on the National Curriculum, but we try to include as much practical activity as we can. The children also benefit from the visits of peripatetic music teachers and sports coaches.

The school is supported by an active Parent Teacher Association.
