Green Waste collections and Recycle Sites
Buckinghamshire Council are working to reopen the Buckingham Recycling Site as soon as possible. They are waiting for the relevant legislation to come into place and then they will endeavour to reopen with new restrictions on how the site the work. They ask residents to be patient once the sites open as they anticipate that these sites will be exceptionally bust.
They are also hoping to reinstate green bin collections from 11th May 2020. Bins will need to be curbside by 6.30am in order to be collected and will be collected on your normal bin day. You are asked not to overfill these bins to help those who are collecting them.
Buckinghamshire Council are calling on anyone who likes to record their daily life to complete a "lockdown diary" for the county archives. If you are interested, you can see further details on their website,https://www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/…/diary-your-lockdown-e…/
Composting in Buckinghamshire
We know the nice weather will have meant that many residents will be spending time in their gardens, enjoying the weather and on essential maintenance.
Whilst the local Household Recycling Centres are all closed, now would be an ideal time to start composting your garden waste.
Buckinghamshire Council has some good information on how to start, as well as links to other websites where you can purchase a compost bin.

New Maids Moreton Traffic Survey
Discussing continued concerns about the level of traffic flows within Maids Moreton, it was felt that traffic levels had increased compared with those recorded in December 2018. To check whether this impression was correct, a pilot sample was undertaken on 15 October 2019 at the Main St / Manor Park junction between 0800 and 0900. This indicated that traffic had increased.Consequently, more comprehensive traffic counts were undertaken at two key junctions that provide a good overview of traffic levels within the village. These two junctions are Main St / Manor Park and Mill Lane / Church St. In order to make the data as comparable as possible with that from 2018, the same recording periods, 0800 to 0900 and 1700 to 1800 were used.
