Bin day on Station Road
Bin day on Station Road
This is within the Chiltern District Council area, the second tier local authority that is responsible for street waste collection. Councils normally ask that the bins are left by the kerbside, as here, and that they must be completely closed, i.e. not overflowing, unlike here. Landfill waste, usually in black bins, is usually collected once every two weeks, with recycling and/or green waste collected during the opposite week.
However it appears that here the collections are on the same day, so we had lorries going in opposite directions causing quite a bottleneck on this busy road. The white lorry, collecting green waste, is operated by a contractor Verdant.
