Redbridge waste recycling centre off Abingdon Road - the "tip" - is the place to take everything that isn't suitable for kerbside rubbish collections, whether unsafe (batteries), not otherwise recycled (Tetrapaks) or simply bulky.

It's open every day of the week including Sunday. The County Council website says that it's open on bank holidays - this includes Easter but doesn't include Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day. Note that it can get very crowded at weekends.

Six large skips are numbered:

1 Cardboard
2 Timber
3 Landfill
4 Landfill
5 Green waste (i.e. garden waste)
6 Metals (including drinks cans but also large items with metal parts)

Other sections of the tip are available for all the following:

  • large electrical appliances (WEEE), e.g. fridges/freezers, PCs, CRT monitors, televisions
  • bikes and bike parts (refurbished by Oxford Cycle Workshop)
  • clothing and shoes
  • light bulbs (including fluorescent tubes)
  • household batteries
  • car batteries
  • glass bottles and jars
  • drinks cartons (Tetra Paks)
  • soft plastics (including carrier bags)
  • paper
  • gas canisters (e.g. Calor)
  • engine oil
  • rubble
