There will be skips out on Friday 29 May from 9am to 4pm. Please note if full skips are removed by the contractors towards the end of the collection period, they may not be replaced, so it’s a good idea to get your rubbish to the skips as early as possible.

If skips located closest to your flat are full, please take your rubbish to another skip at these locations and note the future skip dates.
More useful tips are available on page 42 of OUSA’s Uni101 booklet.

Please make yourself familiar with the DCC rubbish collection service requirements for using DCC rubbish bags only and when to put out your recycling bins. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.
