Council garden waste service open to new subscriptions

South Oxfordshire District Council has reopened its paid-for garden waste service to new subscribers.

The service has continued throughout the lockdown for existing subscribers and for a short period of time the council and waste contractor, Biffa suspended taking on new subscribers to prioritise the kerbside household collections while members of the waste collection crews were off sick or self-isolating.

Biffa has now built up sufficient resilience in its workforce to enable new customers to join.

The service will also take extra garden waste (equivalent of another brown bin – three bin bags) during the collection week of 18-22 May.

The service costs £49 per year and is an annual subscription paid by direct debit.
