Bigger, better household recycling centre - Witney
The household recycling centre based in the Welch Way car park has moved to the new Woodford Way
car park and has increased the capacity of recycling materials by 40% compared to the old site. Eleven
additional recycling bins have been added.
New to the site is tetra pack recycling. Tetra pack bins are also being installed at the Coop in Carterton,
Sainsburys, Witney and Back Lane, Eynsham.
Householders will be able to bring up to nine different types of recyclable materials to the Woodford Way
food and drink cans/tins
clothes and shoes
Other materials like garden waste, building rubble, car tyres, batteries and any commercial waste
must be taken to the Oxfordshire County Council-run tip at Stanton Harcourt.
Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for the Environment said: We are very pleased to have
worked with Simons, the Marriotts Close developers, to provide this new and larger recycling
Its extra capacity will allow more people to recycle more waste and help towards meeting our
target of considerably reducing the amount of refuse sent to landfill.
The new Woodford Way car park which opened before Christmas provides 250 spaces including
10 disabled bays. The entire site including the recycling centre provides high security for users
with a CCTV camera monitored from the control room at Witney Police Station.
