Garden waste recycling

(free from November 2010)

Garden Waste Bin

Garden Waste Bin

Free garden waste collections are being introduced by West Oxfordshire District Council at the end of November 2010 as part of the new recycling and waste service.

All households have the opportunity to receive FREE fortnightly garden waste collections by signing up. Simply register now:

Complete the WODC online form
or call 01993 861025

Anyone who does not sign up will not receive garden waste collections when the new service starts. However, if you are an existing garden waste customer please see the information at the bottom of this page.

It is the first time that free garden waste collections will be available in West Oxfordshire. At present, this is a paid-for service available to only around 5,000 households.

Anyone who signs up for these collections will have a wheelie bin for their garden waste.

What you can put in a garden waste bin

  • Grass cuttings
  • Plants and leaves
  • Prunings
  • Cut flowers
  • Pet straw and sawdust
  • Windfalls

Putting your garden waste to good use

All garden waste collected will be composted, helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. When landfilled, garden waste rots and produces harmful greenhouse gases and pollution. See what happens to your recycling for more information. Composting at home is still the most environmentally friend use for your garden waste, so please continue to do this.

Existing garden waste customers

Existing garden waste customers will automatically receive garden waste collections. Please see the West Oxfordshire District Council ‘existing garden waste customers‘ page for more information.
