Waste and recycling collections

The Vale of White Horse District collects food waste every week, and rubbish and recycling fortnightly on alternate weeks. This means one week you will put your rubbish and food waste out for collection and the week after, your recycling and food waste.

If you pay for a brown bin this will be collected fortnightly and will be on the same day as your recycling.

The normal collection day for Farmoor is Thursday, but this will be affected by public holidays.
