Extra garden waste collection

Brown subscribers can leave out extra garden waste

Residents who are subscribed to the district council brown bin garden waste service in South Oxfordshire or the Vale of White Horse can have extra garden waste collected for free, on their normal collection day only, on either 30th or 31st October 2023.

Householders will be able to 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.
