on Thu, 24/10/2019 - 8:08pm

Residents who recycle food and garden waste will benefit from extra help in the next few weeks.

Hallowe’en usually means lots of leftover pumpkins at the start of November. Any that can’t be used in cooking or composting can be collected by the bin crews if left next to the food waste bin.

The pumpkins, like other food waste recycling, is taken to a processing centre in Oxfordshire where it is transformed into fertiliser and green electricity.

Extra garden waste:-

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

Crews will collect the equivalent of one extra bin’s worth of garden waste (around three large bin bags) during the following weeks:

  • week commencing 11 November – Vale of White Horse

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 cannot be accepted.
