Abstract: Debris is second generation dust found around main sequence stars, formed by collisions among planetesimals. Starlight is absorbed and then re-radiated, predominantly at far-infrared to millimetre wavelengths. Ambitious surveys with the Herschel observatory and the SCUBA-2 camera are described. These surveys aim to explain the huge diversity of debris discs and the connection to planetary systems.
