Who we are
Oxfordshire Waste Partnership (OWP) is a partnership of the county and district councils of Oxfordshire who are working together to continuously improve waste management services within the county.
The members of OWP are:
- Cherwell District Council
- Oxford City Council
- Oxfordshire County Council
- South Oxfordshire District Council
- Vale of White Horse District Council
- West Oxfordshire District Council
In Oxfordshire, responsibility for waste management is shared between the county council, which is responsible for waste disposal and the district councils, which have responsibility for collecting household waste.
Since April 2007, OWP has operated as statutory Joint Committee, meaning that the partner councils have made a legally binding commitment to work together on waste management issues.
OWP has developed a new Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy for Oxfordshire, which sets out our plans for managing waste more sustainably in the years ahead.
