Bucks Council advises that residents can check the revised schedule online here and that bins should be ready for collection by 6:30am on the revised collection day.

Councillor Thomas Broom said: “Easter is the time to enjoy great food and the company of our loved ones while celebrating the beauty of spring. Easter eggs, like Christmas presents, can generate quite a lot of extra packaging to recycle. You can find advice on our website for what can be recycled, where it needs to go and even some handy tips for using leftovers creatively.”
