Extra garden waste collections – w/c 20th May

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 in May.

South Oxfordshire council 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:

  • week commencing 20 May – 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.

More details about garden waste are available on our garden waste pages.
