Moving out

Tuesday 08-05-2018 - 11:04

You can be left with a lot of unwanted stuff when you move out of halls or your house at the end of the year. Instead of simply chucking it in the bin, you can donate or recycle it.

Find out how:

Oxford Food Bank:

Try to eat as much of the perishable food you have left over as possible. Cook a big meal with friends to use up the contents of your freezer. 

Then donate any leftover food to the Oxford Food Bank: 

  • Sealed dried goods
  • Tinned foods
  • Toiletries and sanitary products
  • Washing powder and liquids

Donation points can be found in halls. Please don't donate any fresh or opened perishable items. 

 

British Heart Foundation:

What to donate:

  • unwanted clothes
  • bags
  • books
  • home and kitchenware
  • DVDs and CDs
  • small electrical items. 

Where to donate: look out for the red British Heart Foundation donation bins at your halls. 

If you live in Oxford, you can also take your filled bag to one of the BHF donation bins across the city:

  • Mazil Way, Cowley Road
  • East Avenue (corner of Morrell Avenue)
  • Albert Street, Jericho
  • Corner of Gray Road and Old Road
  • Sinnet Court, Southfiled Road
  • Top of Morrell Avenue
  • Magdalen Road Church
  • Corner of Marston Street and Cowley Road
  • Corner Botley Road & Cripley Road

From May to July. Find a donation point, or shop here. 

 

Recycle:

 

Recycle anything you can't donate, via the dedicated recycling bins around your halls:

Food waste - out of date food, dinner scraps, tea bags, etc. These should be placed in the food waste bins. 

Scrap metals - old metal saucepans, baking sheets, cultlery. These should be placed in the scrap metal bins. 

Old electricals - does it have a plug? Does it need charging? Does it have batteries?  If so, it's electrical waste and should be recycled in the waste electricals recycling bin.
