Raising the bar in recycling: Your chance to talk rubbish and recycling with Oxfordshire’s councils

Raising the bar in recycling: Your chance to talk rubbish and recycling with Oxfordshire's councils

Do you know that each household in Oxfordshire produces one tonne of waste each year? We are amongst the best in the country at recycling and composting for a few years now at about 60% but recycling rates have started to drop in Oxfordshire.

Residents are being given the chance to talk rubbish and recycling and tell Oxfordshire's county, city and district councils how they can help them recycle more and create less waste. More »

This consultation will inform the review of the joint countywide waste strategy. This sets out shared priorities across Oxfordshire for waste and recycling until 2030, that will be approved by the Oxfordshire Environment Partnership over the summer. Then, each council partner will adopt changes later in the year.

We want to do better at recycling and the new joint countywide waste strategy is critical to this. We know that on average over half of the items put in the general waste bin could have been recycled by placing them in the other bins available.

Through this consultation residents are being asked what would help them to reduce their overall waste consumption and recycle more. This includes expanding the range of materials that can be recycled at the kerbside and tips and advice on left-over food, upcycling clothing or donating or buying second hand goods. The councils are also seeking views on more radical schemes that have been implemented elsewhere in the country, such as changing bin sizes and collection frequency.

Councillor Yvonne Constance, Cabinet Member for Environment at Oxfordshire County Council said: "We want to help residents to increase the amount they recycle and have looked around at what other councils are doing. This is a long-term strategy and we will not be making any immediate changes however we are interested in which of these the residents of Oxfordshire think may work for them as we seek to minimise the overall amount of residual waste produced in the county."

Do you want to help us recycle and reduce waste? Take part in the online survey at www.recycleforoxfordshire.org.ukThe survey runs for six weeks until 18 February.

We want to ensure that as many residents as possible know about the changes. If your parish council uses social media we would also be grateful if you could like and share our social media posts, and post the following information and graphic attached:

  • Your councils want your ideas about reducing, reusing and recycling our rubbish. Help them shape the future of waste and recycling services in Oxfordshire and tell them how they can help you recycle more - complete their survey by 18 February www.recycleforoxfordshire.org.uk

If you have any questions please let me know

Kind regards

Put your real tree to good use after Christmas – recycle it!

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 11:41 by Guy Langton

When the festivities are all done, residents in Southern Oxfordshire are being encouraged to make sure their real Christmas trees are put to good use by recycling them.

Garden waste customers simply need to leave their real tree next to their brown bins on their usual collection day:

  • week commencing Monday 9 January

However, residents do not have to be signed up to garden waste collections to recycle their real trees. They simply need to take it along to one of the drop-off points being set up by Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire District Councils. More »

Details of the drop-off locations are available on the council's websites www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/christmastrees.

Last year a total of 2,384 real Christmas trees were collected and recycled from the various drop off points in Southern Oxfordshire. This is in addition to the trees that were left next to the brown garden waste bins.

Cllr Charlotte Dickson, cabinet member for waste and recycling at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "Householders can obviously compost their real Christmas trees at home but we understand not everyone will want, or have a garden, to do this. We're very pleased to give all householders the chance to recycle their trees and hope as many people as possible take advantage of this."

Cllr Tony Harbour, cabinet member for waste and recycling at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: "It doesn't matter whether you live in South Oxfordshire or Vale of White Horse – you can take your real Christmas tree to any one of the locations across Southern Oxfordshire to be recycled. Please remember to remove stands and decorations and if you're a garden waste customer, please simply leave your tree next to your brown bin – they have a tendency to get stuck inside the bins which can cause problems for the crews."

The drop-off locations for real Christmas trees are:

Before Tuesday 9 January

  • Buckland Village Hall
  • Childrey playing field
  • East Challow Village Hall Car Park

Before Thursday 11 January

  • Appleford recreation field car park
  • Milton burial ground

Christmas waste and recycling collections

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 08:25 by Guy Langton

Residents in Southern Oxfordshire are being reminded that their waste and recycling collections will change over the Christmas and New Year period.

They can find out all the information they need on South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils websites www.southoxon.gov.uk/christmaswaste and www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/christmaswaste.

Garden waste collections will be suspended over the Christmas period, while crews concentrate on collecting all the extra waste from Christmas. Garden waste customers will receive an extra collection in the spring to make up for this. More »

Householders can also find out what to do with all their Christmas waste on the website, along with details of how to recycle their real Christmas trees.

Following the recent snowfall in the districts, the councils would also like to remind residents that in the event of adverse weather, like snow or ice, it may not be possible for collection crews to make all their scheduled collections. If the districts are affected by bad weather, all the latest information about bin collections will be posted on the councils':

Details will also be available on the websites.

Cllr Tony Harbour, cabinet member for waste and recycling at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: "As we approach the busiest time of year for our waste crews, we'd like to thank all of our residents in advance for their co-operation and for their efforts in recycling. The vast majority of waste over Christmas can be recycled, so we hope everyone will do their very best to recycle everything they can, including all their food waste."

Cllr Charlotte Dickson, cabinet member for waste and recycling at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "As a reminder to our residents, you're able to put out extra waste for recycling over Christmas, so please check out the information on our website to see what to do with it. We're extremely grateful to everyone for helping our council to recycle as much as we do. Hopefully we won't get any more disruptive weather, but if we do we'd appreciate your patience. Please look online for all the latest updates if this happens."
