Recycling and Waste Collection Days

Collection Day Search

As recycling and refuse collections alternate weekly, Oxford is divided into two zones:

  • Blue
  • Red

Your recycling or refuse collection day will depend upon what zone you live in.

Use your street name OR postcode in the search bar below to find out which zone and collection day relates to your property. You can then download the blue or red zone collection calendar below so you know when to present your bins/boxes/bags.

Please note: we are only responsible for collections within the boundary of the city of Oxford i.e. postcodes beginning with OX1, OX2, OX3 or OX4. We do not cover areas outside the boundary such as Botley, Kennington, Kidlington and Horspath.


Search Full Street Name (Without house number e.g. Western Road)
OR

If you cannot find your recycling collection day using the search above, please email recycling@oxford.gov.uk and our Recycling team will get back to you.
