Snow and bin collections in West Oxfordshire

Bin collections cancelled – Tuesday 12 December

Due to the icy road conditions there is no bin collection service in West Oxfordshire today (Tuesday 12 December) – this includes bulky household waste and clinical waste collections.

Weather permitting crews will be collecting bins as scheduled from tomorrow (Wednesday).

Catching up on missed collections from Monday & Tuesday (11 & 12 December)

We will empty the missed bins from Monday and Tuesday as soon as possible, depending on road conditions. However, if necessary, crews may be working over the weekend and early into next week to catch up.

Please leave your bins out.

Garden waste collections suspended

So that crews can concentrate on clearing the waste and recycling from Monday and Tuesday, garden waste collections have been suspended until 9 January.

Why collections were delayed

Although main roads have been gritted by Oxfordshire County Council, many of our collections are on hills and minor streets. Collection trucks are heavy and will be braking as they do hundreds of stops on each round – this can be hazardous in icy conditions. We delayed collections to take account of the safety of pedestrians, other motorists, property and our own crews.

If you would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact Oxfordshire County Council at enquiries@westoxon.gov.uk. Thank you for your support.

    Don’t want to be too grumpy but WODC have been paid upfront to collect garden waste and now have chosen not to for 11 December and then according to their own timetable 27 December. I’m not sure it’s ethical to take money and not deliver the service. I fully accept rejigging for the weather…. but it’s not an excuse to miss out two collections.
