Langford Village spruces up in time for Christmas

People living in Langford Village will be enjoying cleaner street scenes in time for Christmas, thanks to a council cleanliness campaign.

Published: Wednesday, 20th November 2019

Cherwell District Council’s street cleansing team will launch their latest neighbourhood blitz on Monday 25 November, and will spend the week removing litter, graffiti and fly-tips in the busy Bicester area.

During the campaign, eligible households will be able to have three items of bulky waste removed for £6. That is a 66 per cent markdown on the usual price, which residents can unlock when they book during the week of the blitz campaign. Residents will also be able to buy extra blue and brown recycling bins for the reduced price of £10.

Graeme Kane, Cherwell’s chief operating officer, said: “People living in Langford Village will see our busy street cleansing team in action next week as they work to get the area looking its best in time for Christmas.

“Residents there do a great job at sorting their waste and recycling correctly, but we will be stickering bins on some streets to make sure that everyone has a handy guide to what goes in which bin at their fingertips.

“It is all about supporting residents’ sense of pride in their area, and I am sure local people will enjoy seeing the difference as the festive season approaches.”

The blitz area includes Whimbrel Close to the north; Ravencroft and Avocet Way to the south; Flanders Close to the west and Shearwater Drive to the east.

The previous blitz, in the Grimsbury area of Banbury, saw 11.9 tonnes of waste removed via street sweeping, litter picking and bulky waste collections.
