Household recycling centres switch to winter hours

Buckinghamshire Council’s nine household recycling centres switch to winter opening hours on Saturday 1 October. The new opening hours will be 9am to 4pm.  

The household recycling centres will be operating the same days as normal, as only the opening hours are changing, due to the reduced number of visits to the centres after 4pm.  

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change, said:
“Once again as the evenings get darker and our sites get quieter, we are switching to our usual winter hours. From 1 October, we will be open from 9am to 4pm, continuing to offer a comprehensive service for residents. You don’t need to book a slot to visit the centres, but I recommend that you check our live webcams before setting off to see if the site is busy before you travel.“

The household recycling centre are open on the following days:

– Amersham, Aston Clinton, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, High Wycombe and Langley – open every day. – Aylesbury (Rabans Lane), Burnham and Chesham – open five days a week, closing on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  

When visiting a site, please check the webcams online to see how busy the site is and for the quieter times to visit. You should also always bring proof of address as only residents who pay council tax to Buckinghamshire Council can use the sites (Slough Borough Council residents are able to use Langley and Burnham sites only.) Please come back another time if the site is busier than usual, as long queues can cause traffic and block access to homes and businesses.  

Further information, including what waste the centres do and don’t accept, can be found on Buckinghamshire Council’s Household recycling centres webpage.
