Recycling Facilities

Get your waste to the right place

Oxfordshire County Council have made an online tool to help people repair, reuse and recycle more.

The Waste Wizard is a new online tool to kill the confusion around recycling and help Oxfordshire defeat General Waste.
Type in your postcode and the name of any item to find out whether it can be reused, repaired, donated or recycled.
