Extra garden waste collections available this month

Tue, 09 Oct 2018 10:06 by Guy Langton

Residents across southern Oxfordshire who are signed up for brown bin collections can put out twice as much garden waste during the extra garden waste weeks this month.

South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils are 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 80 litre bin bags) in the following weeks: More »

  • week commencing 15 October – Vale of White Horse customers
  • week commencing 22 October – South Oxfordshire customers

    Residents should leave their extra garden waste out in bin liners or sacks beside their brown bins on their usual collection day during these weeks. Trade waste bags will not be accepted., however you can re-use old compost bags.

    The garden waste is taken to a recycling plant in Oxfordshire where it is used to make compost, which goes to local farmers, allotment holders and an annual compost giveaway. However, there are increasing reports that the waste is being contaminated with non-compostable items such as plant pots, plastic bags and bottles.

    Cllr Elaine Ware, cabinet member for housing and environment at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "This extra garden waste service offers a great opportunity for residents to clear their gardens and make them ready for winter. We want to take this opportunity to remind people that they should only put compostable garden waste in the brown bin."

    Cllr Caroline Newton, cabinet member for housing and environment at South Oxfordshire District Council, added: "I would encourage all our garden waste customers to make use of this extra-large collection – it's the right time of year to give your garden a really good clear out. Please bear in mind that just because something is used in the garden, that doesn't make it garden waste."

    What CAN be put into the brown bin

  • Leaves
  • Grass
  • Weeds
  • Flowers and plants
  • Hedge clippings
  • Branches (not more than 10cm thick)
  • Prunings and twigs
  • Windfall fruit
  • Hay / Straw / Sawdust (soiled animal bedding from non-meat eating animals only eg rabbits)
  • Vegetable waste from the garden only eg potato tops (not kitchen waste)

    See the councils' websites for more information via www.morerecycling.co.uk.

** Please note that boxes and bags left on the extra garden waste days are left at the customer's discretion and the council will not replace them if missing or damaged. » Less

Skips in East Hanney

Tue, 18 Sep 2018 09:50 by Guy Langton

In August, the skip by the village hall was refused collection as it was seriously overloaded.

At its September meeting, the Council decided to change the provision so the skip will be in the village for half an hour only, with the driver waiting to take it away. Skips will, from October on, only be at the Hall as there is limited space at Snuggs Lane. They will also now be provided on Saturdays. So, starting on the 13thOctober, at 11am (leaving at 11.30am), the skip will be in the overflow car park of the Hall. The future dates would be 8thDecember and 16thFebruary.
