Spring starts with a deep clean in Bicester

A deep spring clean will soon refresh the area of Langford Village in Bicester as the council continues its neighbourhood blitz programme.

From Monday, 20 March, Cherwell District Council's street cleansing team will deep clean the area during a five-day targeted clean-up campaign. During this period, the recycling team will be door-knocking to answer questions about council recycling and waste services. Residents are also invited to help the officers by reporting trouble spots in need of extra attention.

The blitz will give residents in this area the chance to have unwanted furniture and white goods collected for free through the large item collection scheme. Opportunities will also be available for residents to buy additional blue and brown recycling bin for a reduced price of £18 during the blitz week. The streets will also be deeply swept and any abandoned vehicles cleared.

Cllr Debbie Pickford, Cherwell's lead member for clean and green, said: "Our residents deserve a spring clean of their streets to help support their pride of place. The blitzes have proved to be a successful way to both collect tonnes of waste at one time and involve residents in keeping the streets clean for longer.

"I am confident that the campaign will leave Langford Village looking as good as new. And I hope the residents will take advantage not only of the large item collection but also of having a face-to-face chat with our clean and green team who could help them improve their recycling."

The bulky waste collections normally cost £16 for up to three items but are free to Langford Village residents if they book their collection during the week of the blitz. It can be booked once blitz week begins online via the link below.

Residents using the bulky waste collection service are reminded that the items they leave out for collection must not obstruct roads or pavements.
