If you are a customer of the garden waste collection service, why not make use of an extra-large collection of garden waste in the week beginning Monday 9 April.
You will be able to put out the equivalent of one extra brown-bin’s worth of garden waste in sacks or reusable bags (around 3) next to the bin on your normal collection day.
Please don’t use trade bags or rubble sacks. The crews will do their best to return these sacks to the correct property, but you can also use a disposable sack if you prefer.
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.”Cllr Elaine Ware, cabinet member for housing and environment at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “After the Easter bank holidays is a good time to give residents this extra service and we hope they find it helpful. It’s a perfect opportunity to get their gardens ready for summer.”
