About us

Oxfordshire Recycles is an informal partnership of the county and district councils of Oxfordshire, who are working together to continuously improve waste management services for residents.

We are:

In Oxfordshire, waste management duties are shared between the County Council, which is responsible for waste disposal, and the District Councils, which collect household waste.

Between April 2007 and March 2014, we operated as the Oxfordshire Waste Partnership, a statutory Joint Committee. During that time, we saw recycling and composting rates rise from 33% to 60%.

We have rolled out alternate weekly collections and built two anaerobic digestion sites, as well as a state-of-the-art energy recovery plant. Oxfordshire’s residents are among the highest recyclers in the country, and we produce one of the lowest rates of waste per household.
