Residents in Oxfordshire have been amongst the best at recycling and composting for a few years now, and our countywide recycling rate is around 60%, one of the best in the country.
We can do better though; we are now noticing waste levels rising and recycling rates have dropped over the last few years despite residents being able to recycle more things at the kerbside. Reducing the amount that we throw away puts more money in our pockets – it is estimated that a family of 4 throws away around £60 of food each month. Around 60% of the materials placed in the bin could be recycled using our current systems, if this was all placed in the correct bin it would save the council around £1.7 million a year which could then be used to improve services.
All the councils in Oxfordshire are working together to seek your views on how we can help you to reduce the amount you throw away, and recycle more.
Please read the information provided on this consultation. Your views and opinions matter. Please take the time to respond.

Location of Salt Bins in the Parish
Dont forget we have numerous salt bins around the village and you can help yourself to the salt and grit to enable better access on public pathways and highways.The salt bins are located at various points around the village:
Entrance roundabout to Old Kiln Lakes estate
Estover Way - near the roundabout
Mill Lane - near White's Field pedestrian entrance
Henton - entrance to the Peacock
Hill Top Lane
Hill Road - by the gooseneck island
Station Road - Community Pavilion
Lower Icknield Way, High Street, Grafton Orchard, Station Road & Lower Road, Chinnor.
Network reinforcement works that Freedom Group, on behalf of UK Power Networks, will be commencing on Monday 27th November.
The first stage of the works will be starting from opposite the junction of Elderdene on Lower Icknield Way and progressing in the carriageway towards Grafton Orchard. The works will be carried out with the use of traffic signals.
The second stage of the works will commence in January 2018 starting from the electricity sub-station opposite 8 - 10, Station Road and working down Lower Road to a point of connection to the existing underground network opposite the junction of Springfield Gardens.
These works will again be carried out with the use of traffic signals.
The aim of the proposed works is to improve the reliability and security of the existing underground electricity network.
There will inevitably be a certain degree of disruption during these essential works but we will endeavour to keep this to a minimum.
Should any further information be required or you wish to discuss these works in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact www.freedom-group.co.uk
