Oxford’s recycling roadshow is the perfect way of how to learn more about this issue. Did someone say freebies? 

4) Our recycling roadshow will be in Bonn Square on 15 Dec from 11am – 3pm. They’ll hand out free food caddy liners, useful items made from recycled material, and recycling bags. And they’ll answer questions about recycling, with an emphasis on extra recycling over Christmas.
