Snow and bin collections in West Oxfordshire
Bin collections cancelled – Tuesday 12 December
Due to the icy road conditions there is no bin collection service in West Oxfordshire today (Tuesday 12 December) – this includes bulky household waste and clinical waste collections.
Weather permitting crews will be collecting bins as scheduled from tomorrow (Wednesday).
Catching up on missed collections from Monday & Tuesday (11 and 12 December)
We will empty the missed bins from Monday and Tuesday as soon as possible, depending on road conditions. However, if necessary, crews may be working over the weekend and early into next week to catch up.
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.
