Recycle at home, at work, on the street and on water!
It’s official: Oxfordshire now has more opportunities to recycle than ever before.
Oxfordshire Waste Partnership’s (OWP) Annual Report published this week highlights the work done by Oxfordshire councils to provide residents with even more chances to recycle. From new food waste recycling collections (South Oxfordshire) and recycling services for businesses (West Oxfordshire, Oxford City and Cherwell) to increased recycling bins on the high street and even the waterways these extra facilities have helped Oxfordshire’s recycling rate reach over 43% for the first time.
Author of the report OWP coordinator Wayne Lewis says: “It’s pleasing to see how residents are taking on board a host of new recycling initiatives. Oxfordshire councils are working hard to provide residents opportunities to recycle and reduce waste at home, at work or school and whilst out and about.”
Cllr John Tanner chairs OWP and adds: “A big thank you to everyone in Oxfordshire for recycling a record 43% of everything we throw away. Better still we are chucking out nearly 5% less than we did last year. It's a real privilege chairing Oxfordshire Waste Partnership, which enables all the local councils to work together. We want to make our county one of the very best for recycling and minimising waste."
