Recycling (mixed and paper & card)

Chiltern and Wycombe

Service status

Suspended in Chiltern and Wycombe on Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th, Thursday 26th and Friday 27th March. We’re working with our contractor to bring in additional resource, so that the service can be resumed. This is an evolving situation and we are assessing our ability to reinstate the service on a daily basis.

Advice for residents

Please store your recycling, so that it can be recycled once the service resumes, which will be communicated by the Councils. Please present your bin on your usual collection day in preparation for the service to resume. However, if it is not collected because the service is still suspended, please do not report a missed collection and bring in your container(s).

If you are not able to store your recycling, it can be disposed of in your black general rubbish bin or bags on your usual collection day. However, to support our crews, we kindly ask that residents contain all their waste within their bin(s) and use the food recycling service.

There are no current planned changes to collection frequencies or days.
