Proposed design plans:
Get ready for autumn with extra garden waste collections
Residents across southern Oxfordshire who are signed up for brown bin collections can put out twice as much garden waste during one week this month.
South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils are giving those who are part of the paid-for service the opportunity to put out the equivalent of one extra bin’s worth of garden waste (around three large bin bags) during:
- week commencing 16 October – Vale of White Horse
- week commencing 23 October – South Oxfordshire
Residents should leave their extra garden waste out in bin liners or sacks beside their brown bins on their usual collection day during these weeks. Trade waste bags cannot be accepted.
Cllr Tony Harbour, cabinet member for waste at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “The garden waste service is very popular and this is a little thank you to our residents for all their efforts with recycling. We’d like to encourage everyone to make use of the larger collection.”
Cllr Charlotte Dickson, cabinet member for waste at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “With the autumn leaves falling, it’s a good time to give residents this extra service and we hope they find it helpful. It’s a perfect opportunity to get their gardens ready for winter.”
