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:
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:
Donation points can be found in halls. Please don't donate any fresh or opened perishable items.
What to donate:
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:
From May to July. Find a donation point, or shop here.
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Food waste - out of date food, dinner scraps, tea bags, etc.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.
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.
