Recycling banks and centres

Waste recycling centres

You can take household rubbish and small amounts of asbestos to a waste and recycling centre run by Oxfordshire County Council.

The nearest centre to West Oxfordshire is Dix Pit in Stanton Harcourt.

Details of opening hours, what you can take and any charges for non-household waste are all available on the Oxfordshire County Council waste and recycling centres pages. 

Van and trailer permits

Vehicles over 3.5 tonnes are not permitted into the waste and recycling centres. 

You can apply for a permit to use commercial type vehicles (such as a van or trailer with a load bed of 1.8m to 3m in length) provided they are under 3.5 tonnes and not carrying any commercial waste.

Recycling banks

West Oxfordshire District Council has made the decision to permanently remove all recycling bank sites. These recycling banks were put in place before kerbside collections were introduced and, due to ongoing issues with all sites including overflowing bins, contamination of bins with non-recyclable items, bins being used by local businesses and frequent fly-tipping of waste around the bins, the Council have made the decision to remove them permanently.

Any waste left at the sites after the banks have been removed will be classed as fly tipping which is illegal. Offenders may be prosecuted, receive an unlimited fine and/or imprisonment.

Please use your kerbside recycling collection or take your waste to your nearest household waste recycling centre.

Please see our frequently asked questions for more information about the removal:
