Christmas 2020 - Waste and recycling information

From WODC:

Dear Garden waste customer,

Below are your bin collection dates over the festive period.

Please note that garden waste collections will be suspended on December 25th and start again on the week commencing the 18th January 2021.

This will be a longer suspension than usual to allow the crews a four day break with their families as a thank you for their hard work over lockdown.

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year!

For information on bin collections and recycling please click here.

We will collect real Christmas trees when the service resumes w/c 18th Jan. Trees should be cut up so that they fit and placed inside your licensed garden bin or if it is full, left by the side of the bin. Trees larger than 90cm / 3ft should be cut into manageable pieces before putting out. Anyone, including those who are not garden waste customers, can take their tree to the Council’s collection point at Witan Way, Gar Park G in Witney on Sunday, 17th January, 2021.

Most of your Christmas waste can be recycled - we’ll even collect your excess...

Extra recycling

  • We will recycle all your extras like biscuit and sweet tins, Christmas crackers and cards.
  • Please note: we cannot accept foiled wrapping paper or glittered cards as these cannot be recycled.
  • Just put your extra recycling out in clear open bags. Please keep your glass, glass bottles and jars separate in your recycling box.
  • If you can't fit cardboard in your recycling bin you can break this down into A3 sized pieces and leave this next to your recycling bin for collection.
Extra food waste
  • We collect your food waste every week. We’ll even take leftover sprout and turkey bones. Simply put your kitchen caddy out for collection too if your food waste bin is full.
  • If you need a food waste bin or caddy, please get in touch.
