Recycling in College

Wolfson College encourages recycling and provides various facilities:

Compost Bin

We now have a compost bin - please use it! But use it wisely: if the bin gets contaminated with the wrong items all our efforts will go to waste - literally!

Eggshells, fruit and vegetable peelings, teabags and the like are all welcome.

Strictly NO meat, dairy or grease!
Check the red information signs for details.

If in doubt  - email the WCSA Green Officer.

To find the bin go to the main recycling point near the back entrance to the College.

Mixed recycling

Paper, cardboard, glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles and plastic food containers can be placed in the large purple containers in the waste collection area at the back of the College, close to the entrance of Bredon House. 

Residents can use the special bins provided in their kitchens or take their items for recycling direct to the purple bins mentioned above.

Electrical items

Small electrical items may be placed in the large blue bin near the back entrance of H Block.

Charity Collection Point

If you have any items to donate to charity, there is a British Heart Foundation (BHF) charity collection point in the Wolfson College car park, in the corner near Chadwick House. BHF welcomes donations of any of the following:

  • Clothes, Shoes and Handbags
  • Books
  • CDs/DVDs
  • Games and Toys
  • Homewares
  • Bric-a-brac

If you are a UK tax-payer, you can even Gift Aid your donation, by using the BHF bags and forms available from a table near the Porters' Lodge.
