Residents may have noticed that some of the litter and dog bins in the village are full to overflowing. South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) has advised that, owing to the Coronavirus crisis, the waste contractor, Biffa, has suffered some staff shortages due to illness and self-isolation but is managing this by redeploying staff and using agency drivers.
However, with new crew members unfamiliar with the routes and in some cases fewer staff, it’s likely that on occasions, crews might not be able to complete all of their daily rounds and so some bins might not be emptied on their usual collection day.
Residents are requested, if a bin is full, to take their litter home and put it in their black waste bin. Your co-operation during this difficult time is appreciated.
