Have you had your new recycling bin?

West Oxfordshire District Council is asking householders to contact them if they have not received a new blue-lidded wheelie bin for recycling.

This can be done online at or by calling 01993 861025.

From October 2017, households across the district will use wheelie bins for recycling, except for glass and small electrical items which will be collected in a black box.

In line with most other councils, recycling collections will become fortnightly and will alternate with the general household rubbish collection. However, food waste will continue to be collected weekly.

The new recycling bins have been delivered to householders during July and August.
