South Bucks District Council Waste Services Update

Dear Residents,

There are no changes to the current arrangement s for collections, however, new bulky waste collections will be suspended as resources may have to be diverted to more frontline services. 

**** UPDATE ********************************************************************************

All Household Recycling Centres across Buckinghamshire are closed until further notice.

Government advice is that we should 'only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work'

The safety of customers and staff is very important, therefore in accordance with current government Coronavirus guidelines of avoiding non-essential contact and preventing a risk of infection to others, the sites will be closed. It is essential that we do all we can to slow down the spread of the virus.

Much of the waste that goes through the Recycling Centres is bulky waste (large items such as furniture, wood and metals) and garden waste. People should hold onto these items until the sites reopen. Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.

During this time, we ask residents to act responsibly and not place items such as DIY waste, or recycling into their kerbside general rubbish collection. This will take up space in the collection vehicles needed for general household rubbish.

If you have garden waste to get rid of, you can always try home composting. It’s a great alternative and there are many ways to get started

*********************************************************************************************

If you already have a collection booked it will go ahead, unless we contact you to say otherwise.

Household recycling centres

To check if a household recycling centre is open, view the
'Household recycling centres opening hours and locations' webpage.

If you are self-isolating, have COVID-19 symptoms or are in an ‘at risk’ category, please do not visit household recycling centres at this time.

Cleaning and disposal of waste

When cleaning you should use your usual household products, like detergent and bleach as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces.

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your home and not in communal areas. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household bin.

Other household waste and recycling can be disposed of as normal.

If storage for at least 72 hours is not appropriate, contact your district council; they will supply you with orange clinical waste bags for you to place your bags into so the waste can be sent for appropriate treatment.
