We do take this very seriously. We always try to clear areas within 24 hours of a report, but some more complex issues may take up to five working days.
In the last six months we spent £20,666 on clearing up 400 cases of fly-tipping and over £155,652 on litter picking. This is money that could have been used to re-fit 45 bathrooms or 39 kitchens!
Unwanted bulky items?
Did you know that you can arrange for the council to come and collect your unwanted bulky items? They can collect all sorts from carpets and mattresses to beds, furniture, domestic fridges and freezers. They even offer a discount if you're in receipt of income-related benefits. Take a look at the Buckinghamshire Council website for more information.
Want to know which bin to put something in or where to take it?
On the Buckinghamshire Recycles website, you can search for an item and they'll tell you how to recycle, compost or dispose of it! Visit the waste wizard.
