Ask Amazon Alexa

We have been developing the ‘Buckinghamshire Council Self-Service’ skill for Amazon devices to allow our customers to access council services 24/7 from the comfort of their home. Our latest addition to the skill means you can now ‘ask Alexa’ to find your bin day!

If you have an Amazon device, take a look at our helpful video to download the Buckinghamshire Council skill or read our step-by-step guide.

You can download the video as a storyboard here.

To activate the skill, remember to start your question with, “Alexa, ask my local authority…”

Other functionalities of the skill include allowing customers to ask Alexa to:

  • Find information on local councillors and MPs
  • Book specific recycling and waste collections
  • Find information on how to pay council tax
