Held for the first time in 2012, ReFashion brings together businesses, charities, students, schools, volunteers and community groups to highlight the problem of disposable fashion.
We're pleased to annouce that Traid will once again be supporting the event - want to learn how to turn your unloved clothes into new fashion masterpieces with a few simple tricks?
Take part in TRAID's #SecondhandFirst People's Catwalk Show where TRAID's window designer and stylist Francesco will guide you through a catwalk style with a live interactive styling performance.
Please email Sarah Sarah@traid.org.uk to register your interest and take part. Bring along an item of clothing from your wardrobe that tells a story and share it with us on the day.
Places will be limited so don't miss out!
Recycle 1 More Thing
Could you recycle 1 more thing and help increase Oxford's recycling rate?
Oxford is the third best city for recycling in the country, with just under half of all waste recycled.
However, studies show that up to 80% of all material is recyclable, so much more can be done to increase this!
Did you know that drinks cartons, aerosols and foil can all go into the blue bin?

Pledge 4 Plastics
Plastic can be recycled into all sorts of things, including clothes, toys, chairs, street furniture and bins. I wonder what your plastic wants to be when it's recycled!?
Pledge4Plastics is a nationwide recycling campaign where you can pledge to recycle one more thing and be in a chance of winning an exclusively design phone case. You can also learn all about plastic on the Pledge 4 Plastics website, including this great video showing the plastic bottle recycling journey.
In Oxford you can recycle all different types of plastic in your blue recycling bin including drinks bottles, cleaning bottles, shampoo bottles, medicine tubs, ready meal trays, yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, bubble wrap, cling film and much more. Have a look at our plastic recycling page to learn more or check out our plastic recycling leaflet.
New! Small electrical items collections
Oxford City residents have done a fantastic job of keeping broken electrical goods out of landfill. Over 22 tonnes of electrical items have been recycled since the pink electrical banks were introduced into Oxford in July 2012.
The new kerbside scheme will make it even easier for you to recycle electrical and battery powered items at the kerbside.
See our Small electrical items collections page for more information.
Due to a change in our recycling collection policy, if you manage a communal refuse and recycling store, you may need to take action now.
Visit our Flats and HMO Recycling Policy page for full details.
