Bucks’ household waste recycling centres change to winter opening times from October 1.

The county’s 10 sites will be open from 9am to 5pm (a change from the summer closing time of 6pm) seven days a week, except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Recycling centres are located at:

Amersham: London Road East, HP7 9DT

Aston Clinton: College Road North, HP22 5EZ

Aylesbury: Rabans Close, Rabans Lane, HP19 8RS

Beaconsfield: A40 London Road, Lower Pyebushes, HP9 2XB

Bledlow Ridge: Wigans Lane, HP14 4BH

Buckingham: Yonder Slade, Buckingham Industrial Park, MK18 1RZ

Burnham: Crowpiece Lane, SL2 3TG

Chesham: Latimer Road, HP5 1TL

Two re-use shops, at Aston Clinton and High Heavens, Wycombe, sell unwanted but saleable items which are donated at recycling centres. The funds raised from the sale of these items are supporting a local charity, South Bucks Hospice, to build and run a new hospice building.
