Recycling centres in Chiltern

Household Waste Recycling Centres

Buckinghamshire County Council operate all the Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRC) in Buckinghamshire. HWRC's are facilities where residents can dispose of their re-usable items, recycling and rubbish. There are two sites in the Chiltern District;

  • Amersham, London Road East, HP7 9DT
  • Chesham, Latimer Road, HP5 1TL

All sites are open seven days a week, except for 25 December, 26 December and 1 January. Opening hours are 9am to 6pm in the summer months, changing to 9am to 5pm from 1 October.

You will need a permit to dispose of household waste when using a commercial vehicle, trailer or van larger than 1.2m x 0.9m. Permits are free and can be applied for by calling 01296 387828 or by completing an online form(external link)

Removal of Upper Belmont Road recycling centre

The removal of the recycling bins from Upper Belmont Road, Chesham, will occur on the week commencing August 8th 2016.

Due to improvements in door-to-door recycling collections, households can now recycle a full range of materials. It is therefore no longer necessary to retain this recycling centre. This site is also a fly-tipping 'hot spot' and the subject of numerous local complaints.

Please use your household recycling facilities or the nearest recycling centres:

  • Star Yard Car Park, Chesham
  • Watermeadow Car Park, Chesham

 

Recycling centres

Across Chiltern, there are over 35 recycling centres. There are recycling centres in car parks and on streets. You can the recycle your extra paper, card, glass bottles, glass jars, tins, cans foils, plastic bottle, textiles, shoes and books which can also be recycled at home.

Our recycling bins are emptied on a regular basis. Please do not leave anything outside of the bins. This will be classed as fly-tipping and you can be prosecuted.
