Your waste service

Household bin collections

Homes across the County have regular collections of recycling, garden waste, food waste and general waste. There are also collections for clinical waste, bulky waste and more. Visit the bin collections page at Buckinghamshire Council for more information.

Household Recycling Centres

All residents can visit the household recycling centres managed by Buckinghamshire Council across the county to dispose of waste. There are ten sites in Buckinghamshire  and you can visit the Household Recycling Centre pages for more information. We have created a graphic to show where the waste and recycling taken to Household Recycling Centres goes (click on the image to view in more detail). 

Street cleansing

Buckinghamshire Council works hard to keep the streets clean. Litter picking, emptying of litter bins, clearing of illegally dumped waste are all part of keeping our lovely County clean. Find out more about these services here

Waste disposal

It is Buckinghamshire Council's duty to manage all the waste produced by household from the moment of collection until it has been recycled, composted or disposed of safely. Find out what happens to your waste here

Waste prevention

It's important that we all try to reduce how much waste we produce. Buckinghamshire Council works with local community groups, commercial partners, schools and more to help people make changes to their behaviour that reduce waste. This website has more information on how you can do that.


England aims to recycle or compost over 65% of its waste by 2035, the current national rate is 44%. Buckinghamshire Council recycled or composted 49.6% of it's waste in 2022/23.
