cheap sport jerseys authentic Bin collections missed in West Oxfordshire leave residents furious
West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC) changed its contractor at the start of the month, and residents have since complained about missed collections, with some going weeks at a time without their bins being picked up.
Sylvia Bence, from Payne Farm Cottages, Swinbrook, said she was so fed up with the system that she was going to make a bonfire with her refuse.
She said: “If they don’t come soon, we’re going to take all the rubbish to a field and burn it, then we’ll invite all the neighbours round for a bonfire.”
Carol Reynolds, cabinet member for environment, who looks after refuse collection, said: “We are aware that some residents have experienced missed collections in the first couple of weeks of the new service and have then had unacceptable delays in their waste being collected.
“We are working closely with our contractor Ubico to identify all the issues and additional resources have been allocated to ensure any missed collections are dealt with as quickly as possible and problems are not repeated.
“We are asking residents to bear with us whilst they catch up as we are confident that our usual high level of service will resume shortly.
