Wednesday 12 December 2018

The crews have reported the following roads as no access:

  • School Road, Wooburn Green
  • Mayfield Road, Wooburn Green

Please leave all bins or bags presented as the crews will return as soon as possible to make the collections. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

If you are reporting a missed bin for the following roads in Hedsor,

  • Hedsor Park,
  • Sheepcote Lane,
  • Hedsor Priory,
  • Hedsor Hill,
  • Four Winds

We have investigated and can confirm that these roads were completed on the correct day of collection.  A number of bins were not presented for collection at 07.00.  Unfortunately we will not be returning to collect any containers that were not presented by 07.00. 

Frozen garden waste

Freezing temperatures can cause garden waste to stick to the inside of bins.

Our crews try their best to empty bins with frozen waste by shaking them on the lifting equipment.

If our crews cannot empty the frozen contents, we will not return until the next scheduled collection.

You can help prevent garden waste freezing by keeping the bin lid closed and, if possible, storing the bin in a warmer spot, e.g. in a shed or beside your house. On the morning of the collection, use a spade or similar to loosen the waste and check that the lid will open.
