You can place extra recycling neatly at the side of your recycling bin in the old recycling boxes, a cardboard box or a clear plastic bag. Please do not use black bin liners.
If you are a large household, you may be entitled to a larger recycling bin. Please contact us on 01865 249811.
If one of your wheelie bins has gone missing, please call Thames Valley Police on 101 to obtain a crime reference number and then call us on 01865 249811 to request a replacement bin.

Approximately 80% of the waste in the average household bin can be recycled or composted. Please make full use of your recycling bins before placing waste into your green wheeled bin. Visit our Excess Rubbish page for more information.
By using the recycling service fully, you may find that the size of your bins is too large. If you would like a smaller bin, please email email@example.com or call 01865 249811. The request will be passed to a customer liaison officer to make an assessment.

An improved recycling scheme was introduced across Oxford in October 2010. All households that wanted them were delivered a blue wheelie bin for their recycling.
However, residents are still able to use their blue and green recycling boxes for their recyclable materials if they want to.
Our wheelie bins are micro chipped for a number of reasons:
No personal data is held on the chips, only address data.
