Extra Garden Waste Collection Next Week

Henley residents who are subscribed to the district council brown bin garden waste service in can have extra garden waste collected for free next Wednesday 1 November.

Householders can put out a maximum of up to four additional sacks of garden waste, per brown bin subscription, next to their brown bin.

To be eligible for collection, the extra waste must go in standard sized (60L) sacks and should only contain natural garden waste such as cut grass, plants or branches.  Alternatively, it can be placed in boxes / containers totalling no more than a standard bin full.

People are asked not to leave out rubble or builders’ waste bags alongside their brown bins as these won’t be collected.

All the garden waste collected will be taken to a facility in Wallingford where it is composted.  The compost will then be sold on to local farmers for use on their farmland.

Cllr Sue Cooper, Cabinet Member for Environment at South Oxfordshire District Council said: “If you’re not able to put your extra garden waste on your home compost, please put it in a sack or box and leave by your brown bin on your next collection day and it will be taken to be composted.  But please, no rubble or builders’ waste bags.”

More information about garden waste collections can be found on the South Oxfordshire garden waste page
