CHANGES have been made to residents in Cherwell who are due to have a bin collection on Christmas Day.

Households expecting to have a bin collection will now get their pick-up three days earlier.

The collections due on Tuesday, December 25, will be brought forward to Saturday, December 22.

Bin collections due on Boxing Day which is Wednesday, December 26, will be delayed until Saturday, December 29.

Cherwell Distirct Council lead member for clean and green Debbie Pickford said: “With all that packaging from presents and the extra food we consume, volumes of waste and recycling reach a crescendo at Christmas.

“So as well as giving our collection crews time at home with their families, we have to make sure they get a rest.

“Residents can help by making sure their bins are out for 7am.

“Lots of us will also be entertaining visitors but please make sure they park so that bin lorries can get through.”

Cherwell District Council has also said the collection due on the New year’s Day will also be changed.

The bin collection for Tuesday, January 1, is planned to come a few days earlier as the collection is brought forward to Monday, December 31.

The council has also reminded people resident in the New Year will be able to recycle their real Christmas tree by placing it in or next to their brown garden and food waste bin. All decorations must be removed.

Household in Cherwell can also place as much recycling out for collection as they want next to their blue bin as long as it is bagged, not in black bags.
