SODC Extra Garden Waste Collection


Harsher weather is coming and residents might want to get one last bit of gardening in before winter really takes hold. Good news – South Oxfordshire District Council is offering existing garden waste customers an extra large brown bin collection during the week of 27 October.  So, if you have got extra branches and brambles that simply won’t fit in your brown bin, you can put out one extra bins’ worth of garden waste in sacks or reusable bags on your usual collection day – you just need to make sure they’re open so the crew can see what’s in there.

SODC Elects New Leader

cotonCllr John Cotton is the new leader of South Oxfordshire District Council after a vote at the Full Council meeting on Thursday 16 October. He replaces Ann Ducker, who served as leader of the council for 11 years.  Mrs Ducker passed away in September after a short illness.
Cllr Cotton has served on the council since 1999 and during that time has served on the cabinet as the representative for planning, IT and Didcot.  He was chosen by the ruling Conservative group as their candidate for the leadership on Tuesday 14 October.
Cllr Cotton said: "I am excited by the job ahead – it’s a real privilege to have been given this opportunity.  Filling Ann’s shoes will be difficult, but I will give it my best and I hope - come May next year - that my colleagues in the new cabinet and I will have given everybody in the district cause to say a job well done."
