A helping hand with recycling festive waste …

West Oxfordshire District Council will collect extra recyclable waste during the festive period.

Additional recycling must be in either black recycling boxes, open cardboard boxes or clear bags and put out alongside the recycling wheelie bin. However, for safety reasons, glass bottles and jars should only be placed in a black box.

Indoor food caddies can also be left out for collection alongside outdoor food waste bins.

More information about recycling, including Christmas collection times, can be found at www.westoxon.gov.uk/festive or by calling 01993 861025.

The website also details what can be taken to local Household Waste Recycling Centres and to recycling banks.
