Education sector recycling and waste management

ODS has many years’ experience managing recycling and waste of many different educational establishments in Oxford. From primary schools to university colleges, we provide the right service to suit any educational establishment.

Education sector recycling and waste management

We can supply the appropriate bins, containers or sacks for all types of rubbish to suit your business needs including mixed recycling, glass, food, and general waste.

Our flexible collections run six days a week, Monday to Saturday, 6am to 9pm, dependent on location. 

Recycling and waste management in the education sector

Due to the size of campuses and number of students, large amounts of recycling and waste are created on a daily basis. ODS can review your waste output and advise how to improve recycling rates and streamline your waste  collection; for example using a compactor to reduce the volume of your rubbish and therefore number of collections needed.

Our expert team can manage your account providing insight on how to improve your waste management strategy. This includes finding straightforward ways to recycle, and monthly reports to help you understand your waste output.

All these features aim to result in reducing waste, meaning fewer collections and, therefore, a reduction in carbon emissions and lower costs.
