Absolutely dire. Not worth 1 star. Trying to report missed bin. As their crews didn’t report missing it the system won’t allow anyone else to. Phone number a joke and you wait 30 minutes on hold before it hangs up on you …

Last Friday after the brown bin collection I noticed the bin was cracked probably caused as it was frozen and very full with leaves and grass. I asked for a replacement and was very surprised to get a new one on Wednesday. Brilliant service

I just think the offices are rubbish, your on hold waiting to speak to them for 40 mins for them to shut you off as fast as they can and tell you to sort it online. No help at all, I wonder how I didnt get through the queue faster if that’s what they do to everyone.

Having viewed the endless negative reviews, that generally point to a shocking lack of service, arrogance, and contempt, the most alarming thing is, the blatant thuggery and mindless intimidation by security staff. The disregard of peoples …

Can’t even be bothered to answer the phone…. What is going on in Derby, England?? Why won’t my own council speak to the people who pay their wages 🤦‍♂️ If we didn’t pay our (ridiculous) council tax bill you’d be straight on us…..disgraceful set of hypocritical halfwits. …

I was concerned to find out that my friend who is being evited (no fault eviction – just that the landlord wants his house back) has been advised by a lady at this council to not leave the property on the day she is meant to leave and just stick it out through the landlords court proceedings so she doesn’t have to move yet.

The council here are trapping motorists with unreasonable fines for straying into empty bus lanes or stopping at empty bus stops. Well if the long term goal is to make people visit elsewhere and never to return to Derby they are successful. I will go to Stafford from now on as just as close.

I love the customer service soon I will buy the Derby City Council to build a nice parking lot and to charge people £5 an hour for the parking space better than £70 fine. Love it that’s why I pay £110 a month council tax. Next year I will be even happier because the council tax is going up.

I popped into the Jobcentre in this building and I was quite underwhelmed. The person who saw me for my appointment was miserable and expressionless. They were also very dismissive, the customer service was definately lacking. They were also not an active listener and not as competent as I would have liked.

So what are the opening times ? If I had a choice of Council, I’d go elsewhere same as i would with any other tradesperson. Dreadful attitue

I can only agree with the general consensus of other reviews. Poor customer service that fails to reflect the councils role of being a public servant. to be honest it is what I expect from public services who have no real need to be customer focussed.
