Spendlove bring site to close
The Town Council has just received the following from West Oxfordshire District Council, after noting the absence of the public consultation on the closure of the bring site at Spendlove promised last Autumn:
'Following consultation with the associated town or parish councils’ and the WODC ward councillors, a decision has now been made to implement the decision that the Cabinet made on the 18 November 2020 to permanently remove the remaining community recycling facilities in West Oxfordshire.
This means that residents will need to recycle items using the council’s kerbside service and details of this are on the council website here - https://www.westoxon.gov.uk/bins-and-recycling/what-to-put-in-your-bin/recycling-blue-lidded-bin-and-black-box/types-of-recycling/ All of the items that could be recycled at the community recycling centres can now be recycled using the kerbside service. Residents can also take items to Oxfordshire County Council’s (OCCs) household waste recycling centres, details of these is on the OCC website here - https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/environment-and-planning/waste-and-recycling/household-waste/household-waste-recycling-centres/find-recycling-centre Finally, if residents have a large item which they are unable to take to an OCC household waste recycling centres they can book a bulky waste collection on the WODC website here - https://www.westoxon.gov.uk/bins-and-recycling/getting-rid-of-large-items/
A plan has now been developed and your community recycling centre will start to be removed week commencing 12 July. Signage will be placed at the site this week informing residents of the closure and information, including FAQs, will be published on the WODC web site (www.westoxon.gov.uk ). In addition, information will be published on social media. We will monitor the site after the bins are removed and deal with any issues that arise.'
