Green bin liners are Christmas gift from council

OXFORD City Council is giving residents an unusual early Christmas present — a roll of compostable liners.

The liners can be picked up from today at either the council chambers in St Aldate’s, or the Marsh Road depot in Cowley. People need to bring along the bin tag which would have been placed on their bins last week.

The authority is also giving out details about collections over the festive period. Most will take place two days after their normal day, but a full list is available at oxford.gov.uk And 17 places have been set up to recycle Christmas trees. People can drop off their trees free of charge in the first two weeks of January. They will be recycled into woodchip which will be used in the city’s parks.

The locations are also available from the council’s website.

Council spokesman Louisa Dean said: “Over Christmas we generate around 30 per cent more waste and most of this can be recycled.”

Round where I live the tags were scattered in the road, not placed on bins.

It's not a gift. Who do you think pays for these it's certainly not council workers out of the goodness of their hearts.

Sounds more like incompetant reportage than insensative council spokesperson.

Merry Christmas!

What Sandy meant was that these bin liners are a gift to ourselves as we have already paid for them, unless of course Mr Price and his fellow Cllrs are paying for them out of their own pockets.

What if you're not able to get to either St Aldates or Marsh Road to pick them up?
