New waste and recycling calendars now online
West Oxfordshire residents can now download their waste and recycling calendars for the next 12 months from: www.westoxon.gov.uk
Those who live in the area can simply enter their address in the ‘postcode search’ section on the West Oxfordshire District Council website to access their bin collection calendar.
Here people can also register for handy weekly email alerts about waste collection dates, including a reminder the day before about which bins to put out and helpful information about changes to collection days over the Christmas period and bank holidays.
Cllr David Harvey, District Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We recycle such a lot of materials in West Oxfordshire. The calendar is an aide memoire that could go on your fridge door or noticeboard to help remind you what goes in each bin as well as when to put them out for collection.
“Many residents are already taking advantage of our free email reminders with over 5,500 households registered for our alerts service. It’s easy to sign up and you can sit back knowing you’ll get a reminder straight to your inbox before your next collection.”
Paper copies of the waste calendars are available for those that do not have web access. These can be picked up from:
- The District Council’s Town Centre Shop and Elmfield offices in Witney.
- The Guildhall, Chipping Norton.
- Burford Visitor Information Centre.
- Carterton Town Council.
As well as bin collection information, residents can use the alerts service to receive information about planning applications registered near to their homes.
