Recycling centres to close for short periods next week

Three of Oxfordshire’s household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) will be closed for short periods on 20 and 21 December due to the delivery of essential new concrete safety barriers.

The HWRCs at Alkerton, Drayton and Stanford in the Vale will be affected, and Oxfordshire County Council is urging people to avoid those sites on these days, if possible. All other sites will be open as normal.

The likely closure times are as follows, although they could potentially change:

Monday 20 December

  • Alkerton: closed from 8am - 10.30am
  • Drayton: closed for a period of up to 1.5 hours sometime between 11.30am and 12.30pm.

Tuesday 21 December

  • Drayton: closed from 8am - 10am
  • Stanford in the Vale: closed for up 1.5 hours, most likely between 10.30am and 11.30am.

These times are a guide and may be impacted by localised traffic. Oxfordshire County Council’s website, Twitter and Facebook pages will provide up to date details and times, including exact times for closures and reopening as soon as they are known, with the 8am closures already confirmed.
