Waste collections calendar

Below you will find a link to a PDF download showing your full Waste and Recycling calendar for April 2024 to March 2025. 

The calendar shows:

  • which bins will be emptied on which days
  • details of bank holiday collections changes
  • when we will collect extra garden waste from those properties that subscribe to our garden waste service.

All bins should be put out for collection before 6am, with the lids firmly closed.

How to access your full 2024-2025 Waste and Recycling Calendar

Due to recent changes to our collection routes, we now operate the waste service in the Vale of White Horse via a two-calendar system.  This means your bins may be collected differently to other streets in your area.   

To ensure you select the correct waste calendar for your property, please read the following information carefully.
