Recycling here in Oxfordshire scores highly against other parts of the country, and a lot of our recycled waste is dealt with in-county. However, there is still a percentage of plastic waste that cannot be dealt with that is sold to a company which then sells it on as a commodity overseas. However, there are some hard to recycle items that are either not accepted in our green bins, or which will be dealt with more effectively. We have a number of Terrracycle recycling schemes for such items here in the town, as well as many nearby in Wallingford. See below for details:
