Be 'in the know' about your bin collection dates

The latest waste collection calendars providing details of bin collection dates for West Oxfordshire over the next year are available to view on the District Council’s website, www.westoxon.gov.uk

Residents can see the relevant waste collection dates for their property by simply entering their postcode in the ‘My West Oxfordshire’ search on the website.

The service also allows people to sign up for weekly email alerts of their collection dates, including which bins to put that week and helpful information about changes to collections, for example after bank holidays or during bad weather. Over 3,000 households are already registered for this.

Although residents can get the information online, paper copies are available and can be picked up from the District Council’s Elmfield offices in Witney, the Town Centre Shop in Witney, the Guildhall, Chipping Norton and from the Town Hall in Carterton. Or alternatively upon request by calling 01993 861000

Cllr David Harvey, District Council Cabinet Member for Environment said: “West Oxfordshire residents do a fantastic job with their recycling and the calendars are a helpful reminder for the collection dates for their different bins.

“They are easy to view online and the weekly emails alerts service provides a really helpful prompt from week-to-week, as well as notification of bank holiday day changes. Once you go through the very simple process of signing up, you can sit back knowing you’ll get a reminder straight into your inbox every week before your next collection.”

As well as bin collection information, residents can use the email alerts service to receive information about planning applications registered near to their homes and other useful information, such as who their local councillor is.
