Sack collections for properties unable to use bins
Notice: we’ve changed the colour of the blue sacks that we provide for recycling. We will now provide clear sacks for recycling as standard. Please use up your current supply of blue sacks before moving onto the clear sacks.
For properties unable to use wheeled bins we provide Oxford City Council waste sacks.
- Clear sacks are for dry mixed recyclables and are collected on the same day as blue wheelie bins - More information about what to recycle in your clear sack.
- Lilac sacks are for rubbish (non-recyclable waste) and are collected on the same day as green wheelie bins - More information about what to put in your lilac sack.
Putting out your sacks
Put your sacks out in the same way as bins. More information about putting out waste.
Only three lilac sacks will be collected each fortnight. If you use more than this each fortnight please contact us on the details below.
Rubbish should only be presented in the lilac sacks provided by Oxford City Council, black sacks will not be collected.
Lilac sacks are delivered twice a year in March/April and October/November. To ensure that your supply of lilac sacks lasts for six months, please recycle as much as possible.
If you require additional clear sacks or a food waste caddy, please contact us on the details below.
