Recycling

Commercial recycling services in Oxfordshire.

Our Waste and Recycling team offers strategic and operational guidance to boost recycling rates and minimise landfill waste. Compliance with legislation guides our practices, ensuring waste is only sent to landfill when necessary. With recycling presenting a cost-effective alternative, our solutions not only aid in reducing carbon footprints, but also in cutting overhead expenses for our clients.

Local and sustainable waste recycling for your business

We send recycling to local plants whenever we can, to help keep our overall carbon footprint as low as possible. We have also made improvements to our fleet by utilising greener technologies and route optimisation, so we can contribute towards Oxford becoming a more sustainable city.

Mixed recycling for Oxford businesses

Our recycling specification is much broader than most commercial organisations, due to how our waste is sorted.

This means that glass and multiple different types of plastics can be recycled, saving you from disposing of them as waste. Mixed recycling can also be cheaper than a general waste service because you avoid potential landfill costs.

Our collections run between Monday and Saturday, depending on your location.

What happens to your mixed waste?

Mixed recycling, collected by ODS, is disposed of at a Mixed Recycling Facility (MRF).

This waste is then recycled, using a combination of advanced mechanical sorting techniques, before manual quality control is used to separate the materials before they can be reprocessed into new products.

Glass recycling for Oxford businesses

Pubs, restaurants, cafes, and a range of other businesses, can better dispose of their waste by introducing glass recycling.

ODS provides a tailored service that will suit your needs, irrespective of the size of your business.

Current UK legislation suggests that if you could fill a 240-litre bin with glass every fortnight, you should have a separate glass collection service.

We provide collections Monday to Saturday (depending on your location) and will match you with the right bin size.

Lower your business costs

All the glass we collect is recycled in the UK.

Glass in good condition can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality. Broken glass can be ground down and used for aggregate in the construction industry.

This is great news for the environment, and for you, as recycling glass could lower your existing waste disposal costs!

Quality control

The glass we collect is disposed of at a Mixed Recycling Facility (MRF).

This waste is then recycled using a combination of advanced mechanical and manual sorting techniques. Manual quality control is used to separate the materials, so they can be reprocessed into new glass products.
