Rubbish collection

Rubbish collections This is information we gathered from the Waste and Recycling services page.

Recycling and refuse are collected on alternate weeks, with food caddy collections made every week.

Important update on paint: unfortunately Redbridge will no longer accept paint. If you are unable to dispose of it to friends or neighbours try RePaint on 07960661748. Orinoco will also take your old paint and garden tools and make use of them in the community. Check opening times. Drop of at Bullingdon Community Centre, Peat Moors (off the Slade), Headington. Tel: 01865 761113

Failing that, add sawdust, sand or soil to the paint, leave the lid off until the paint goes solid and dry and double wrap it before placing in your bin.

Old CDs and DVDs can be disposed of at the marked collection box at the entrance to the local school - Phil and Jim.

Emmaus Oxford will collect second-hand furniture from your door and reuse it in the community. Tel: 01865 763698 Email:
