Garden waste suspension
The garden waste collection service is suspended between Monday 25 December to Monday 8 January (inclusive)
Christmas tree recycling
Place next your garden waste bin. Cut into smaller pieces if taller than the bin.
If you do not have access to a garden waste bin, Christmas trees can be recycled at your nearest household recycling centre (links to Bucks County Council), or dropped off underneath the big oak tree by the office at the Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens, Church Lane, Stoke Poges, SL2 4NZ from 2-14 January 2018. Gates open 08.30 - 16.30 Monday to Friday.
Clinical waste collections
There will be no changes to resident's clinical collection days, which take place on Wednesdays.
We will collect a reasonable amount of extra recyclable material at the kerbside, as long as:
- It is loose in a re-useable container - we will not collect recyclables in plastic bags
- It is presented neatly alongside the relevant collection container
- Cardboard boxes are flattened and reduced to a manageable size
The Councils or its contractor will not be responsible or liable for any lost containers used to store extra recycling.
Extra recycling can also be brought to your nearest recycling centre
