Bucks Recycling Centres and Covid testing news

An extract from Martin Tett’s (BCC leader) recent email. Apologies if you have already seen.

I’m really pleased to let you know that all of our Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will be open from next week – Friday 29 May. We already have the sites at Amersham, Aston Clinton, Buckingham, Beaconsfield, and Wycombe open, and the HRCS at Aylesbury, Burnham, Chesham and Langley will also be open from Friday 29 May, 9am-6pm. Please remember that Aylesbury, Burnham and Chesham are closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

All sites will operate the same social distancing measures that we have in place at those already open. It’s harder to manage long queues safely at some of these sites so can I please ask that you avoid visiting at busy times. You can check the website for up to date waiting times and remember to bring some ID to show that you live in Buckinghamshire. Thank you to you all for your patience while we’ve worked hard to get this service fully operational again for you.
