Book Banks in West Oxfordshire - Spread the word

Book banks, provided by the Salvation Army, are the latest addition at six of the recycling centres across West Oxfordshire. This means residents can recycle their books alongside textiles, shoes, plastics, cans, paper, cardboard and glass.

Good quality books are resold, whilst other books may be sent abroad to help education programmes.
Paperback books unsuitable for resale will be recycled into newsprint.

"These book banks extend the range of materials that can be taken to our recycling centres", said Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment. "Recycling books makes sense. It reduces the demand for new copies to be printed, books can be re-used and a charity is supported at the same time."

Books banks can be found at:
* Guildenford Road car park, Burford
* Co-op, Black Bourton Road, Carterton
* New Street car park, Chipping Norton
* Back Lane car park, Eynsham
* Sainsbury's, Witan Way, Witney
* Welch Way car park, Witney

Both paper and hard-backed books are accepted.
