Oxfordshire proud of recycling record

The joint waste operation by local authorities in Oxfordshire is claiming success with more than 60% of the county’s domestic waste either recycled or composted.

Chairman of the Oxfordshire Waste Partnership (OWP) David Dodds says in its annual report that the organisation has gone “from strength to strength”.

“We’ve always strived for high recycling rates, but we never imagined just a few years ago that we’d be recycling over 60% and become one of the leading areas in the whole of the UK,” said Dodds.

“Despite our successes, there’s still more work to do. Some of our activities this financial year will see another anaerobic digestion plant open up, increase facilities for recycling electrical waste and a refresh of our waste strategy to make sure we are constantly challenged.”

OWP comprises Cherwell, Oxford City, Oxfordshire County, South Oxfordshire District, Vale of White Horse District and West Oxfordshire councils.
