OXTOG: Volunteers Supporting OCC Highways

OXTOG stands for Oxfordshire Together and consists of several initiatives that Parish & Town Councils can get involved with to improve their local roads, pavements and public rights of way.

Thank you to all who have borrowed our sign cleaning kits so far.  We are implementing a system where we have kits in all districts throughout the summer being passed from one parish to the next for efficiency.

If you would like to borrow the equipment as part of a spring cleaning/litter pick or for a specific sign cleaning day please contact volunteercoordinationteam@oxfordshire.gov to reserve your kit.

For more information about OXTOG activities please visit:  Volunteer for highways and your community | Oxfordshire County Council

 

 

Suspended - Kerbside Service for Collecting Small Electrical Items

South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils have suspended their kerbside service collecting small electrical items, batteries and textiles for recycling.

This is because the recycling centres for these items are unable to accept them for processing as staff shortages due to illness and social distancing has meant work at these centres cannot continue as it did before the Coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately, the councils do not have storage for such items and so cannot collect them at this time.

They have issued a warning to residents: Please do NOT put unwanted or broken electrical items or batteries in the general refuse (rubbish) or recycling as they can cause a fire in the bin trucks.

A fire in the truck could endanger the lives of bin crews and others nearby. A fire could also lead to the loss of a bin truck and less of a service at a time when the waste service is needed by everyone.

Cllr David Rouane, Cabinet Member for Housing and Environment at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “We are sorry for this temporary stopping of the service and would thank people for their cooperation at this time. Please keep these items at home and as soon as we can start collecting textiles, batteries and small electrical items for recycling again we will let people know via facebook and twitter.”

Cllr Jenny Hannaby, Cabinet Member for Housing and Environment at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “Textiles are a valuable resource for our charity partners. If residents can store them for the time being then please do so, as 100 per cent of the clothes collected from kerbside collections are recycled, no matter the quality.”
