The Christmas-New Year holiday period invariably leads to disruption to, and public confusion over, AVDC's waste collection schedules.
Below is a reminder of the collection schedule for Haddenham, covering the next few weeks:
|Sat 02 Jan||Blue Lid Recycle||+ Food|
|Thur 07 Jan||General||+ Food|
|Thur 14 Jan||Blue Lid Recycle||+ Food|
|Thur 21 Jan||General||+ Food|
|Thur 28 Jan||Blue Lid Recycle||+ Food|
|Mon 01 Feb||Garden Waste|
If you wish to monitor the collection schedule in 2016 for yourself, a smartphone App is available from the AVDC website, or you can visit the published schedule itself here.
The blue lidded recycling bins are used for recycling paper, glass, cardboard, plastics, cartons, cans and tins.
The small food waste bin is for any food (raw or cooked), plate scrapings, fruit and veg, eggs and egg shells, etc (but try to use your own garden compost heap for suitable items, whenever possible).
A full description of what items are suitable for each type of AVDC's waste bins can be found here.
