Changes to Buckinghamshire recycling centres

Buckinghamshire County Council is about to carry out a series of changes to the county's Household Recycling Centre service.

Key changes which start on Monday 1st April 2019, are:

* All sites will introduce charges for non-household waste
* The Aylesbury (Rabans Lane) recycling centre will be closed on two days a week: Wednesdays and Thursdays.
* The Bledlow Ridge recycling centre will be closed down permanently (from 4pm on Sunday 31st March 2019).

It is argued that the changes will make important cost savings that the council's budget requires.

New charges for non-household waste

From Monday 1st April 2019 you will be charged for disposing of non-household waste items such as, bags of rubble, kitchen units, fence panels etc.

Read about what constitutes chargeable waste and how much this will cost here.

Postscript:

Your website editor is reliably informed that from Monday 1st April the large skips in Bucks recycling centres will be fenced off and inaccessible to the public. Anything and everything being dumped will be subject to scrutiny by the on-site staff.

Ka-ching, Ka-ching!

It seems likely that this will give rise to lengthy queues of vehicles down to Rabans Lane as far as the Lynx Gym!

Or maybe similar queues down the nearest (previously deserted) rural lane?

In case it proves increasingly relevant, here's the link to report fly tipping in Bucks!
