Clean team goes for Glory

A cleanliness campaign will visit Bicester’s Glory Farm next week as Cherwell District Council’s street cleansing team takes on litter, fly-tips, graffiti and more.

The neighbourhood blitz runs during the week beginning Monday, 5 November. It will encourage residents to make the most of council services with the offer of discounted recycling bins and free bulky waste collections.

Additional blue and brown recycling bins can be ordered for the reduced price of £18 during blitz week.

Cllr Debbie Pickford, Cherwell's lead member for clean and green, said: “We want people to be able to enjoy neat and tidy public spaces. The neighbourhood blitz supports people to take pride in their area by addressing the issues that occur in the busiest parts of the district.

“I hope lots of Glory Farm residents will take up the offer of free bulky waste collections and cut-price bins to show their support for their blitz.”

Residents in the Glory Farm area will be able to apply for the free bulky waste collection service. It will let them have up to three items removed providing they book during the week of the blitz.

Residents can book their bulky waste collection online, and Cherwell’s customer service team will check they qualify to have it free of charge. The service ordinarily costs £18.

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