Message from Oxfordshire County Council requesting no bonfires during Coronavirus pandemic

Please do not light garden fires during the current coronavirus pandemic. The Household Waste Recycling Centres are closed for the time being and we need you to hold material for now.

As well as the danger of the fire spreading uncontrollably, there are people in the community living with serious respiratory problems, which could be made much worse if the sufferer is exposed to smoke from bonfires.

Instead please compost your garden waste where possible, and stack or bag up rubbish for disposal when the current emergency is over.
