Bin collections now resumed

Weather permitting, and where it is safe to do so, crews will be collecting bins as scheduled for the rest of the week. If your bin is not emptied, please report it as a missed collection.

Catching up on missed collections from Monday & Tuesday (11 and 12 December)

Depending on road conditions, we will empty the missed bins from Monday and Tuesday as follows:

Rubbish will be collected Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 December
Food waste will be collected on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December
Recycling will be collected on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 December

Please leave your bins out.

Garden waste collections suspended

So that crews can concentrate on clearing the waste and recycling from Monday and Tuesday, garden waste collections have been suspended until 9 January.

Why collections were delayed

Although main roads have been gritted by Oxfordshire County Council, many of our collections are on hills and minor streets. Collection trucks are heavy and will be braking as they do hundreds of stops on each round - this can be hazardous in icy conditions. We delayed collections to take account of the safety of pedestrians, other motorists, property and our own crews.
