Changes to Buckinghamshire recycling centres
Buckinghamshire County Council's Cabinet agreed a series of changes to the county's Household Recycling Centre (HRCs) service in January 2019. A public consultation about possible changes ran in Autumn 2018 for 8 weeks and received over 6,000 responses. For more information you can see the full decision report and associated documents or view the cabinet meeting webcast.
Key changes which started on 1 April 2019, are:
- all sites introduced charges for non-household waste
- Aylesbury (Rabans Lane), Burnham, and Chesham household recycling centres now close 2 days a week on Wednesdays and Thursdays
- Bledlow Household Recycling Centre has permanently closed
The changes will make important cost savings that the council's budget requires. They will also make sure that Buckinghamshire residents, as a whole, experience as little change as possible when using their local recycling centre.
New charges for non-household waste
From 1 April 2019 you will be charged for disposing of non-household waste items such as, bags of rubble, kitchen units, fence panels etc.
Aylesbury (Rabans Lane), Burnham, and Chesham household recycling centres are now closed 2 days a week on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Bledlow household recycling centre closure
Bledlow Household Recycling centre is now permanently closed. It closed at 4pm on Sunday 31 March 2019.
