We recently reported the prosecution of a fly tipping offender, and mentioned the ready availability of household waste and recycling centres in Buckinghamshire.
As Autumn approaches, the opening times of these centres change, and here is the latest information from Bucks County Council.
Buckinghamshire's household waste recycling centres change to winter opening times from 1 October to 31 March, 2014.
The county's 10 sites will be open from 9am to 5pm (a change from the summer closing time of 6pm) seven days a week, except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
Recycling centres are located at:
- Amersham: London Road East, HP7 9DT
- Aston Clinton: College Road North, HP22 5EZ
- Aylesbury: Rabans Close, Rabans Lane, HP19 8RS
- Beaconsfield: A40 London Road, Lower Pyebushes, HP9 2XB
- Bledlow Ridge: Wigans Lane, HP14 4BH
- Buckingham: Yonder Slade, Buckingham Industrial Park, MK18 1RZ
- Burnham: Crowpiece Lane, SL2 3TG
- Chesham: Latimer Road, HP5 1TL
- High Wycombe: High Heavens, Clay Lane, Booker, SL7 3DJ
- Langley: Langley Park Road, SL3 6DD
Two re-use shops, at Aston Clinton and High Heavens, Wycombe, sell unwanted but saleable items which are donated at recycling centres. The funds raised from the sale of these items are supporting a local charity, South Bucks Hospice, to build and run a new hospice building.
Residents can take a wide range of items such as clothes, cycles, electrical items, furniture, CDs and DVDs, tools and gardening equipment to be sold and reused. Items can be donated at any of the recycling centres and will be sold at one of the two re-use shops.
Since the re-use shops were opened in Summer 2012 around 70,000 items have been sold, with the most popular items being electricals and cycles.
