Your waste collections over Easter

As with every bank holiday, our waste crews will empty your bin on a different day. For information on your revised collection day visit the South Oxfordshire District Council and Vale of White Horse District Council websites.

You can recycle all of your Easter egg boxes, plastic inserts and foil wrapping, too – they all go in your green bin.

As spring is coming, it’s a great opportunity to have a clear out. Don’t forget you can put worn-out clothes and textiles for recycling in a carrier bag next to your green bin, and we’ll collect them when we empty it.

If you’ve got any old broken electronic toys left over from Christmas or any kitchen gadgets that have seen better days, you can leave these next to your grey bin in a carrier bag and we’ll take them away for recycling.


We empty your bins on a different day after a bank holiday – here are the details for the next one:
