Bin Collections over Early May Bank Holiday

Bin collections across Buckinghamshire will be operating to a revised timetable next week.

With no usual collections on Monday 2 May (Early May Bank Holiday), all usual collections that week will take place one day later than usual.  So Chearsley will be Tuesday.

Residents in the south of the county are reminded to please check to see if an additional one-off collection has been scheduled for your property the week commencing Monday 2 May. These collections are being provided to households which would otherwise experience a long delay between collections as the new bin collection schedules are being introduced. Please note the additional one-off collections are not impacted by the Bank Holiday and you should present your bin on the day listed. Please check your new bin day online.

As the weather continues to improve, it’s likely that BBQ season will be fast approaching in Buckinghamshire. Remember all foil drinks cans, plastic and glass bottles can be recycled at home. If you use a disposable barbecue, please make sure you’re disposing of it safely and responsibly after use. For helpful hints and tips, please take a look at our online Waste Wizard.

All of Buckinghamshire’s nine household recycling centres will remain open over the Bank Holiday weekend, including Monday 2 May. Before making a trip to the tip, please check the Council's website for all the latest household recycling centre information.
