Oxfordshire County Council will re-open its 7 Household Waste Recycling Centres (including Alkerton) on 18 May, for essential use. Essential use means waste that cannot be stored at home, or would cause hard to health if stored.
There will be new site rules to ensure social distancing and the safety of residents and site staff. This includes reducing opening hours to 8am – 4pm to allow for cleaning, limiting the number and size of vehicles coming in and contactless payments only.
Queues are likely, so if it can wait, please do. If it’s waste that can be disposed of legally and responsibly in another way, such as weekly kerbside collections or district council collection services, please do that.
