South Oxfordshire District Council has re-opened its bulky waste collection service for large household items. The Council’s contractor, Biffa, have sufficient members of their workforce available to provide the paid-for service. The Council has re-issued warnings to anyone tempted to fly-tip that they will investigate incidents and prosecute anyone found responsible.
The bulky waste collection service was temporarily stopped to allow the councils’ waste contractor, Biffa, to prioritise the important kerbside household collections while members of their waste collection crews were off sick or self-isolating. Biffa has now built up sufficient resilience in its workforce and can now provide the paid-for service again. The situation is being regularly monitored and residents should be aware that if staffing levels fall the service may need to be suspended again.
