Bicester’s Bure Park will be getting a new-year clean-up thanks to a council cleanliness campaign.
Cherwell District Council will be running the first blitz of 2018 in the Bure Park area during the week beginning 22 January. It will see council street cleansing operatives taking on litter, flytipping and graffiti to get the area looking its best.
Discounted recycling bins will be on offer as will up to 100 free bulky waste collections, offered on a first-come-first-served basis to residents.
The blitz area reaches as far west as Purslane Drive and includes Bartsia and Mullein Roads to the east.
Residents will only be able to book their free bulky waste collection during the week of the blitz. From 22 January, they will be able to check their eligibility and make bookings using an online booking form.
The service ordinarily costs £16 for three items, but will be free to Bure Park residents who book during the week of the blitz.
Residents using the bulky waste collection service are reminded that the items they wish to have collected must have been booked and must not obstruct roads or pavements. During the week of the blitz, Bure Park residents will be able to purchase additional blue and brown recycling bins for the discounted price of £18.
