Every day throughout July and August, AVDC will be delivering 2,500 new sets of recycling bins (with a blue hinged lid) to households. This is in preparation for the start of the new refuse and recycling collection service.

Residents are specifically requested not to use them till the new service starts in September.

But, some residents have been a little too keen, apparently — and the AVDC bin police have noticed a few being put out for collection already. You naughty people!

So please note that the new Blue-lidded bins shouldn't be used until 4th September, as AVDC isn't able to separate mixed recycling at the moment. Everyone should continue to use the existing recycling baskets and box until the new service starts.

According to AVDC:

  • All households have already received a letter recently informing them about the changes to the service and to expect their new recycling bins soon
  • An information pack comes with the new bins, telling households everything they need to know about the new service, including a calendar of the new collection dates
  • The new Aylesbury Vale Times newsletter was recently delivered to all households and this contains a four-page pullout section with all the information in it too.
  • All information about the new service ,including a FAQ's page, is on the AVDC website at: www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/newbins

Householders should look out for a new letter from AVDC in mid-August, with any updates on the new service and what to do with your old baskets/box.
