Changes to DIY waste charges from 1st October 2017

on Fri, 08/09/2017 - 6:09pm

Oxfordshire County Council’s DIY 1,2,3 for free scheme is changing and this affects what DIY waste is chargeable and what you can take for free.

The current scheme which has been running at their Household Waste Recycling Centres for 15 years allowed residents to deposit up to three DIY waste items for free before being charged a small fee of £1 for each additional item.

From the 1 st October 2017 this changes to a small fixed fee per item of £1.50 for most non-household or DIY items.

Residents can still deposit household waste for free at their local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
