RESIDENTS are being offered the chance to tour recycling and landfill sites as part of Recycle Week 2012.
Members of the public can visit Dix Pit at Stanton Harcourt on Monday at 10am.
A tour will also take place at Cassington Anaerobic Digester, West Oxfordshire on Wednesday at 10am.
A sustainable energy fair will be held at Westmill Wind Farm & Solar Park in Watchfield on Saturday, June 23 from 11am to 4pm.
Bosses at Oxfordshire Waste Partnership are using Recycle Week to encourage people to recycle more plastics.
Spokesman Paul Mocroft said: “We’ve been recycling our paper, cans and glass for a long time now and understand what to do.
“When it comes to plastic however, there’s more confusion around what people can recycle.
“Over the past few years our councils have expanded the list of plastics they can accept so almost all plastic food and drink containers can be put out for collection.”
Plastic bottle recycling events will be held at the following locations from 11am to 3pm:
- Witney Market Place, Tuesday.
- Cowley centre, Oxford, Wednesday.
- Didcot Orchard Centre, Wednesday.
- Banbury town centre, Thursday.
- Westgate Centre, Oxford, Friday.
- Abingdon town centre, Friday.
