At the meeting on November 26 we had a short presentation from Fiona Pleydell on recycling items that are not currently recycled by West Oxfordshire. In summary this is what was said.

Four Collection points have been set up in Carterton, to date. These are:

  1. St John the Evangelist Primary School, Bluebell Way
  2. Carterton Leisure Centre
  3. Carterton Library
  4. Humble Bumble Café, Brize Norton

There are dedicated bins for recycling collections at all these locations. If not immediately obvious, please ask a member of staff. The bins are only accessible during the normal opening hours of each location (for the school term time only).
