How to dispose of your Christmas tree after the festive period

 

When disposing of a Christmas tree, we’re reminding residents to:

Remove any decorations

  • Cut the tree down to smaller, manageable pieces
  • Place into a brown garden waste bin

For residents not subscribed to AVDC’s garden waste collection service, Christmas trees will need to be taken to a local household recycling centre.

 Christmas recycling reminder – things ‘Yule’ need to know!

Christmas cards (but not foil or glitter ones please)

Clean paper plates

Paper hats and paper crackers (but not the snap please)

Any extra recycling will be collected by our crews, if presented in a clear bag next to the blue-lidded recycling bin on collection day.

NEWS FROM BUCKS CC

Street lighting faults across the county

 

We are currently experiencing a high number of street lighting faults across the county, in particular in the Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) areas of High Wycombe and Marlow. These are being caused by a failure of the underground electrical supply cables, the reason for which is still under investigation.

 

There have been over 20 new underground faults in November alone. The cable networks are owned and maintained by the electricity utility companies for the area, who are required to carry out repairs within 28 working days.

 

A further complication is that many of these faults are not isolated to single streetlights, but affect multiple lights or a whole area of lighting.

Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) is continuing to work closely with the three electricity companies who have equipment within the county to resolve these issues as and when they are reported, but the repairs can take some time and be complex in nature.

 

TfB is also trialling solar powered temporary lighting solutions where practicable and most needed.

 

Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member Mark Shaw said:

 

“I understand how frustrating these street lighting issues can be but want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to resolve them. I apologise for the inconvenience these outages are causing but I am confident that the utilities companies in question are working as hard as they can to resolve the issue and continue delivering normal service across Buckinghamshire.”
