Oxford City Council have removed the recycling bring banks currently located around the city. The phased removal took place throughout October 2023. Bring banks operated by ODS and independent charity-run banks that are co-located on Oxford City Council land have now been removed.
The decision to remove these banks is due to the comprehensive kerbside recycling services already provided to all Oxford City residents. Their removal will also resolve issues with contamination, misuse of the banks and reduce fly-tipping, all of which results in additional costs for Oxford City Council.
Now that the bring banks have been removed, ODS are cleaning all of the sites. They are also aiming to recycle the steel and plastic from the containers or to repurpose them for other uses.
