Refuse Collection



Please note that the two bins in the carpark are not for public use and fly tippers will be prosecuted

These  bins are for the exclusive use of the CGCA and hall hirers when they hire the hall. The CGCA are responsible for the bins and the cost of emptying them. By dumping rubbish in or around these bins you are fly tipping.


Collection days

The general collection day for bins in Calvert Green is Monday. This does vary however if there are bank holidays or there is particularly bad weather and no collection service.

For a full schedule of collections please visit the Refuse & Waste Collection Days page on the Aylesbury Vale District Council website.

Missed collections

If your entire road has not had a collection, please leave it one day before reporting a missed collection and leave your bins on the boundary of your property/kerbside as usual. If it has not been possible to collect on your usual day they will try to return the following morning.

If you seem to be the only property that's missed a collection, please report it within 48 hours of it being missed, in order for it to be collected. Click here to report a missed bin.

The new Recycling and Waste collection service started in September 2012. Food waste bins are collected weekly and recycling or waste bins are collected on an alternate weekly basis.

Households have two food waste bins; a small silver kitchen caddy and a small outdoor green food waste bin, both with tightly fitting lids. You line the kitchen caddy with a compostable liner and fill with food scraps and when full, place in the green outdoor food bin. Please only put kitchen food waste in this bin.

Recycling bin

Households have a large 240-litre recycling wheeled bin (with a blue hinged lid). You will use this for all paper, glass, cardboard, plastics, cartons, cans and tins, mixed together, you don’t have to separate them.

Please do not contaminate your bin with items that can't be recycled, such as carrier bags. If you're not sure if an item can be recycled or not, please download and read the Refuse Information Leaflet or check the list inside the bin lid.

If you find your recycling bin is too big or not big enough, you can apply for a smaller, larger or an additional recycling bin. Smaller recycling bins have a140-litre capacity, the same size as the standard waste bin; larger ones have a 360-litre capacity.

Waste bin

The rest of your waste, everything that is not recyclable or compostable, goes in your existing green wheeled bin. This will be collected fortnightly on alternate weeks with the new recycling bin.

Garden waste

If you are interested in applying for the service please go to the Garden Waste Collection page on the Aylesbury District Council website.

Garden Waste collection is an optional paid-for service.

Do you need help putting out your bins?  The Council can help you if you are unable to put out your bins yourself. If you have a disability or are unable to move the bins, please call them on 01296 585510 or email:

Clinical waste

If you have clinical waste that you need to dispose of please do not put it in your household waste. Syringes and medical waste needs to be disposed of very carefully. If you want us to collect clinical waste from your property you need to ask your doctor.

General guidelines

  • All waste must be inside the appropriate bin with the llid closed
  • Extra waste should be taken to the tip
  • The correct bins should be out from 7am on the morning of collection or the evening before
  • Food waste bins must have their handle in the upright (locked) position

Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in your bin not being emptied.
