Changes To Bin Collections In Aylesbury Vale

Changes To Bin Collections In Aylesbury Vale

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 6:10am 7th June 2016.

The day your rubbish bin gets pick up is likely to change in Aylesbury Vale.

The changes begin this week - green rubbish bins will be collected first - followed by the blue ones next week.

Food bins will still be collected every week alongside the rubbish bin or recycling bin.

There are no changes to garden waste collections.

For some, this means a three-week gap between recycling collections.

The council are reminding us we can leave extra recyclable waste in cardboard boxes or clear see through bags.

Sir Beville Stanier, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste, said:

"As the Vale's population grows, the waste collection and disposal service must adapt accordingly. We've switched from disposing of waste in landfill to the new Energy from Waste (EfW) facility at Greatmoor, which will be able to accommodate the extra waste new homes create.

This change saves AVDC around £250,000 a year. This money can then be reinvested to improve services.

A change in waste disposal sites unfortunately means a change in waste collection days, so to ensure the switch is as smooth as possible, please keep a note of your new day."

Everyone should have received a letter with the new collection dates last week - but if you've mislaid it, you can check the dates here.
