The parish council is required to publish details of any waste collection contracts.
As a parish we obtain preferential rates by combining our dog waste bin emptying with the contract held by Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) & numerous other parishes due to the powers of bulk buying. Quoted prices are re-compared to the market before renewal.
This was last invoiced in January 2018, total value, £1.380 net of VAT, relating to the council’s 16 dog waste bins on twice weekly emptying during the summer and weekly emptying during the winter. This is reported within the Litter & Dog Fouling cost centre.
AVDC advise prices annually, during the first quarter. The contract runs from April to March annually.
The Parish Council employs litter pickers to empty our litter bins and they dispose of the waste within the wheelie bins at Pitstone Memorial Hall. The Memorial Hall Charity charge the parish council £155 per quarter to make use of this facility, as a contribution towards their own waste collection contract with AVDC.
