Kerbside Collection Services


The Council has two main goals when it comes to waste:

  1. We need to improve the efficiency of resource use, so less waste is created
  2. We need to reduce the harmful effects of waste

The Council provides a number of waste services for the District's residents, businesses, schools and visitors:

  • A fortnightly kerbside refuse bag and fortnightly recycling wheelie bin collection service is provided to approximately 75% of the District’s households. Organics and rubbish bin services are optional.
  • Waste disposal, diversion and recycling services are available at our transfer stations - the Southbrook Resource Recovery Park operates seven days a week, and the Oxford Transfer Station is open two days each week.
  • Operation of a cleanfill disposal site - access to this site is limited to companies registered with the Council to ensure only compliant cleanfill is deposited here.

Kerbside collections over the holiday period

From Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, kerbside collections will move to the following day for the remainder of that week.

Leading up to the holidays, new bin requests, size changes or replacement kerbside bins that require payment will be processed in the New Year. If payment is made before Sunday 22 December, delivery will be scheduled from Monday 6 January. For payments made after Sunday 22 December, delivery will be the next collection date from Friday 17 January.
