The collections are designed to get rid of dead flowers and plants, garden weeds, grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, small twigs and branches.
The service is being provided to 45,000 households and will cost the council £660,000 per year.
The bins can be ordered by calling 01773 841308 or at any of the council offices in Alfreton, Belper, Heanor or Ripley.
Julian Townsend, from environmental services, said: "I would urge people to make the most of this window of opportunity and to order a bin before the deadline."
