Garden waste suspension

The garden waste collection service is suspended between Wednesday 3 January to Saturday 13 January (inclusive)

Christmas tree recycling

Cut up and put into your garden bin. If you do not have access to a garden waste bin, Christmas trees can be recycled at your nearest household recycling centre (links to Bucks County Council)

Clinical waste collections

There will be no changes to resident's clinical collection days, which take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Extra recycling

We will collect a reasonable amount of extra recyclable material at the kerbside, as long as:

  • It is loose in a re-useable container - we will not collect recyclables in plastic bags
  • It is presented neatly alongside the relevant collection container
  • Cardboard boxes are flattened and reduced to a manageable size

The Councils or its contractor will not be responsible or liable for any lost containers used to store extra recycling.

Extra recycling can also be brought to your nearest recycling centre
