Refuse collectors will pick up boxes for the elderly and disabled
Elderly and disabled residents who have trouble putting out rubbish are having a special collection service extended to include recycling.

West Oxfordshire District Council already operates a weekly door-to-door collection service for ordinary waste.

Councillor George Kellow said: "This service already exists, but is doubly important now the recycling service has started in earnest."

Foil, aerosols, batteries and other goods can be collected from 1 April.
