Beginning on September 1, 2020, Oxford County will offer film plastic recycling at three depot locations as part of a pilot program: Waste Management Facility, Tillsonburg Transfer Station and the Woodstock EnviroDepot.
Like many municipalities, Oxford County no longer accepts plastic film as part of its municipal Blue Box Program due to the limited availability of recycling end markets for this type of material. As well, these materials are generally problematic and can damage mechanical recyclable processing equipment and easily contaminate other recyclables. The more material rejected in the recycling process, the more material ultimately added to the landfill.
Since the municipal blue box program is no longer a viable option for plastic film recycling, the County is investigating alternative recycling options for this material. With clean plastic film having a greater potential for finding suitable end markets, the County is implementing a pilot project that allows Oxford County residents to drop off film plastic at any of the three depot locations identified above, free of charge.
The pilot program aims to determine how much film plastic can be separated from the waste stream and ultimately diverted from the landfill.
Oxford County continues to encourage residents to reduce the use of film plastics by:
What material is accepted and not accepted in the Film Plastic Pilot Program:
Agricultural bale wrap is no longer accepted for recycling at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility where it would be waste and charged accordingly. Bale wrap can be recycled through Switch Energy Corp., which will come to your location to pick up the material.
Switch Energy Corp collects the wrap, cleans and conditions the used film so that it can be reintroduced back into the plastic industry. Switch Energy Corp. is located in Clinton, Ontario and can be reached by phone at 519-524-0193 or via their website.
Styrofoam, also known as expanded polystyrene (EPS), is used as protective packaging for electronics and appliances. Polystyrene brought to the Waste Management Facility for disposal will be recycled for use in products like picture frames, construction material, packaging and synthetic lumber.
Bulky, rigid expanded polystyrene foam packaging (Styrofoam) found in packaging from computers, electronics, appliances and toys
Accepted material must be:
The following Styrofoam materials are not acceptable for recycling and can be disposed as garbage
Do you have a large quantity of bulky, rigid white Styrofoam to dispose of? If you have more than 2 cubic metres of bulky Styrofoam to recycle, please contact Second Wind Recycling to organize a direct haul from your site. Second Wind Recycling is based in St. Thomas, Ontario and can be reached by phone at 519-494-4984 or via their website at: http://www.secondwindrecycling.com
Using the recycling depot is the same as using your personal blue box, with the same requirements and material limitations. Bagged recycling is not permitted. Cardboard must be flattened to put it in the cardboard bin although size restrictions do not apply
