NEW! Blue Bin Recycling League

Thanks to you, the city of Oxford is one of the top performing urban authorities for recycling, but there is always more that we can do and we need your help!

The Blue Bin Recycling League is your big chance to win money for yourself and your community just by recycling more. The great news is, it couldn't be simpler to take part!

Plastic Recycling

Plastic can be recycled into all sorts of things, including clothes, toys, chairs, street furniture and bins. In Oxford you can recycle several 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 many more. Have a look at our plastic recycling page to learn more or check out our plastic recycling leaflet (PDF).

Pledge4Plastics is a nationwide recycling campaign where you can pledge to recycle one more thing and be in with a chance of winning an exclusively designed 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.
