Overall 625 tonnes of household rubbish excluding garden waste has been collected during the lockdown period - 86 tonnes more than in the same period last year.
The figures also show 306 tonnes of garden waste was collected – a rise of 33 per cent on the previous year illustrating how green-fingered West Oxfordshire residents have been making the most of lockdown by getting out into their gardens.
Similarly, people have been cooking more with 94 tonnes of food waste generated – a rise of 29 per cent.
A total of 235 tonnes of recycling was also collected – up 10 per cent – while the amount of general household waste stood at 296 tonnes, a rise of 12 per cent.
Cllr MacRae, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “These figures show how much extra pressure crews from our contractor Ubico have been under at a time of extraordinary stress in the workplace.
“I am sure residents will want to join me in thanking them for their continuing efforts.
“We have maintained a full kerbside collection service throughout this period and recently we re-introduced the bulky waste collection service, all of which is a remarkable achievement.”
