Bin collection round changes set to start next week

The changes to some domestic recycling and waste collection rounds in Oxford, announced in February, are set to take effect from 4 April.

This change will affect around 35,000 households - around a half of properties in the city. The City Council has written to all residents to tell them of the change as well as attaching information tags to all bins and are urging residents to take note of the letters to check if they are affected by the changes.

Those residents affected should continue to place their bin out as per the normal arrangements on their new collection day – after 6pm the evening before collection or by 7am on their new collection day, where the pavement meets the public highway.

While the changes will apply to all types of collections, the collection schedules will remain the same: food recycling will be collected weekly, rubbish and mixed recycling will be collected fortnightly, and garden waste will be collected fortnightly for those subscribed to this service.
