Good news for the garden ‘spring clean’!

South Oxfordshire residents who are signed up for brown bin collections can put out twice as much garden waste during one week next month.

South Oxfordshire District Council is giving those who are part of the paid-for service the opportunity to put out the equivalent of one extra bin’s worth of garden waste (around three large bin bags) during the week commencing 9 April.  Residents should leave their extra garden waste out in bin liners or sacks beside their brown bins on their usual collection day.  Trade waste bags will not be accepted.

Cllr Elizabeth Gillespie, cabinet member for housing and environment at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “The garden waste service is very popular. We are glad that we are able to offer extra help at this time of year when people clear their gardens after winter.  We’d like to encourage everyone to make use of the extra collection.”

** Please note that boxes and bags left on the extra garden waste days are left at your own discretion and the council will not replace them if missing or damaged.
