Residents planning to use Oxfordshire’s household waste recycling centres are warned of a series of short closures to enable essential work to be carried out.
For safety reasons, Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) will be shutting each of its centres for two days – although never at the same time – to allow for deep cleaning and essential maintenance to take place. This includes jet washing the sites and structures, repainting lines and safety areas, as well as other general work to improve the customer experience.
The closing dates are:
Alkerton, near Banbury: Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st March
Ardley, near Bicester: Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th March
Dix Pit, Stanton Harcourt: Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th April
Drayton, near Abingdon: Thursday 30th and Friday 31st March
Oakley Wood, near Wallingford: Thursday 20th and Friday 21st April
Redbridge, Oxford: Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th April
Stanford, near Farringdon: Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th March.
All closures are on quieter weekdays to minimise disruption and sites will reopen at 8am the following day. Residents are asked to plan ahead, ideally holding on to their waste until the site reopens or, if that is not possible, visiting one of the neighbouring sites.
More information can be found on the OCC website.
