Let's talk waste and recycling

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We operate seven household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) across the county for residents to bring household waste to be disposed of and recycled. Fifteen per cent of waste in Oxfordshire is disposed of through these sites.

They're getting close to capacity and as the population grows, we want to ensure that they continue to help you manage your waste in the most environmentally friendly way.

Have your say

We'd like to hear what you think about Oxfordshire’s HWRC service, if and how you currently use it and your opinions on some of the ideas we've had for the future. We'll use this information to help us plan the network of sites and how they are run going forward.

There are two ways you can do this. Fill in our online survey using the take survey button below. Join in the conversation on two ideas we’ve had for our HWRC’s using the ideas button below.


Idea 1: Asking people to sort the black bag waste (household waste) they bring to our HWRCs rather than simply throwing it into the general waste container – with your support this could help us achieve even better recycling rates

Idea 2: Introducing some form of booking system at our HWRCs.


Alternative formats

We know that some people can’t or find it difficult to take part in online consultations or need things in a different format such as large print, easy read or a different language etc to have their say.

If you, or anyone you know needs a printed copy of the questionnaire, information in an alternative format or help with sharing their thoughts on our ideas board please email wastemanagement@oxfordshire.gov.uk or call the county council's Customer Services Team on 01865 792422. Please note the council's Customer Services Team are unable to answer any detailed questions about the project.

We are also putting paper copies of the questionnaire in libraries and making them available at our HWRCs.
