The County Council is consulting on the Stanford Tip to set a new plan for household waste recycling (HWRC).
Responses are needed by 14 August 2016 to : www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/waste
The Stanford Tip is to stay open until 2024, but the County Council must save money on the service provided at the tips and is seeking information on the best opening times and best service possible.
It is also important to ensure that future tip development is not concentrated away from the west of the county.
