New dates for Christmas tree chipping

Due to the icy weather conditions, West Oxfordshire District Councilís FREE tree chipping service has been put back for one week until the 16th and 17th January (weather permitting).

Cllr David Harvey, the Councilís Cabinet Member for Environment, said: ďThese sessions are very popular as residents are keen to cut waste knowing that their trees are recycled and put to good use. We are disappointed that we have had to postpone the sessions for one week, but are sure people will understand that this is for safety reasons as pavements and side roads are very icy.

All the chippings collected will be used locally to create environmentally-friendly biomass energy. Last year 10.25 tonnes of chippings were collected.

Chipping sessions and collection points will be running at the following locations:

Saturday 16 January 2010:

Chipping Norton: New Street car park 10am - 3pm
Eynsham: Back Lane car park 10am - 12 noon
Long Hanborough: Playing Fields car park 10am - 12 noon*
Tackley: Village Hall car park 10am - 12 noon*
Witney: Woodford Way car park 10am - 3pm
Woodstock: Hensington Road car park 1pm - 3pm

Sunday 17 January 2010:

Burford: Guildenford car park 10am - 12noon*
Carterton: Black Bourton Road car park 10am - 3pm
Charlbury: Spendlove Centre 10am - 3pm
Witney: Woodford Way car park 10am - 3pm

* Sessions at these locations will be for tree collection only. Trees collected here will be chipped at one of the other locations.

The chippers have been kindly donated by Goodwood Tree Care.
