Bin collections this week

WODC has issued the following statement regarding waste collections this week:

Background
Due to the deep snowfall and cold temperatures overnight leading to icy surfaces, waste and recycling collections will be delayed.
The road and path conditions make it very difficult, and too dangerous, for the heavy collection vehicles and collection crews to access certain parts of the District. Whilst most arterial roads are clear of snow they may still be icy and smaller roads in villages are still snow covered. Roads that are especially steep, in low dips or very narrow may be particularly affected.
We have to consider the risk to pedestrians, other motorists and our crews of sending collection vehicles out in snowy or icy conditions. Injuries to collection crews or members of the public by moving collection vehicles are invariably severe or fatal. West Oxfordshire District Council work in line with our Health and Safety Service Plan and aim to protect the health, safety and welfare of our residents affected by the work activities of us or our contractors.

What services will be affected
 Recycling collections
 Refuse collections
 Garden waste collections
 Food waste collections
 Bulky waste collections
 Clinical waste collections
 Emptying of bring sites

What should residents do?
Leave their bins at the kerbside to allow for the collection crews to catch-up. For more information and the latest update visit: www.westoxon.gov.uk, follow West Oxfordshire District Council on Facebook or Twitter or call 01993 861025.

What Ubico will do?
Uncollected roads will be picked up during the following few working days by the collection crew, subject to weather conditions and material tonnage on the "normal" collection day.
Ubico will call the bulky waste and the clinical waste customers to rearrange collections.
