Bigger wheelie bins for keen recyclers

Anyone wanting to recycle more can now swap to a larger recycling wheelie bin for free. 

The current blue-lidded wheelie bin for recycling materials is a standard 240 litre size, but the new larger bin, at 360 litres, offers 50% more capacity. 

Cllr Steve Good, Cabinet Member for Environment said, “We are responding to households that regularly have extra recycling and feel that their current bin in not big enough. 

“In addition to making recycling easier for them, it will help boost our recycling rates even further, which is good news as West Oxfordshire is already one of the top districts in the country for recycling.”  

West Oxfordshire’s recycling is collected fortnightly in the blue-lidded bin and glass is collected separately in a black box. However, food waste is collected weekly.

 Recycling materials collected in the blue-lidded wheelie bins are cardboard, paper, foil, cartons, aerosols, food tins, drink cans, plastic bottles, tubs and trays.
