Reduce, reuse, recycle

Thanks to you, our residents, Oxfordshire is amongst the very best in the country at recycling and composting.

It’s important to recycle as much as we can and to put as little waste into our rubbish bins as possible. As well as saving money, recycling also reduces energy and water use and helps preserve our world’s finite resources.

But recycling isn’t the whole picture. In order to waste less we also need to reduce the amount of items we throw away in the first place.

There are many ways to reduce waste, form getting broken items repaired to giving old clothes to charity.

Visit the RecycleNow website for all the tips and tricks you’ll need to reduce your waste.
