New Re-use arrangements at Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs)
As part of an innovative new approach a local charity, South Bucks Hospice, has helped to transform the re-use service at the County Council’s household waste and recycling centres. Buckinghamshire County Council will be delivering a re-use service through a local charity.
The changes will mean that unwanted items such as push bikes, clothes and furniture that are disposed of at the recycling centre will now be sold at one of two new re-use shops at Aston Clinton and High Heavens household waste and recycling centres. The funds raised from the selling of these items will support the local charity to build and run a new hospice.
FCC Environment, formerly known as Waste Recycling Group, took over the management and operation of the county’s recycling centres in April 2012. Working closely with FCC Environment and South Bucks Hospice the Council has been able to roll out this radical new approach.
Residents can take things like push bikes, clothing, electrical items, furniture, CD’s and DVD’s, tools, gardening equipment, clothing to be sold and reused at the recycling centres.
Items donated at the other eight recycling centres will be transported to the nearest recycling centre re-use shop in Buckinghamshire.
Re-use shops are open during site opening hours which are:
- 1 April to 30 September, 9am - 6pm
- 1 October to 31 March, 9am - 5pm
7 days a week, except for 25 December, 26 December and 1 January.
