Extra Garden Waste Next Week

Residents who are subscribed to the district council brown bin garden waste service in South Oxfordshire can have extra garden waste collected for free, on their normal collection day only on Wednesday 17 April in Henley.

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

To be eligible for collection – the extra waste must contain only natural garden waste, such as cut grass, plants or branches and be placed in standard sized (60L) sacks or in boxes / containers totalling no more than a standard bin full. Where possible, please use cardboard boxes as these are much more environmentally friendly than plastic sacks.

Please DO NOT use tonne builders’ waste bags – our crews will not collect any garden waste from these.

Cllr Sue Cooper, Cabinet Member for Environment at South Oxfordshire District Council said: “With the days getting longer, people will be spending more time in the garden.  If you have cuttings from overgrown plants and trees and you’re not able to compost them at home, this is a great opportunity for a tidy up and to have them collected.”

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