Level 3 Oasis recycling update

Oasis Recycling is open for business with level 3 restrictions in place.

Our Claremont recycling services re-opened Monday, 1 February 2021 at 9 am.

Our services are operational Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 3pm and Saturday, 8.30am – 1pm.

Here are some friendly reminders regarding recycling etiquette at Oasis:

    • Please remember to package and drop off your waste in one container.
    • Kindly pre-rinse all food containers such as cans, milk bottles etc. before delivery.
    • Kindly refrain from leaving your recycling at Oasis, should we be closed.
    • Please take careful note of items we cannot accept or recycle.

Our recycling services are still limited. Which means we are still not able to accept ALL recycling. We can only take glass, aluminium tins, all paper, cardboard, magazines and books.


We can accept:

  • All paper, including newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, junk mail, circulars, office scrap, envelopes and books. If the latter is in a good condition, please consider donating it to the bookstore.
  • Cardboard, so all boxes, toilet roll inners, cereal boxes and egg boxes, if cardboard.
  • All glass bottles and jars.
  • All cooldrink cans.

 

We cannot accept:

  • Plastic, at all, of any sort. So, no clingwrap, no florist wrap or cellophane. No margarine tubs. None of those thin plastic packets, used for bread, milk or veggies. And no plastic or cellophane food trays, at all, whether used for meat, muffins, fruit or biscuits.
  • No wax-lined boxes. Including banana boxes, milk cartons, juice cartons or yoghurt boxes.
  • Styrofoam products.
  • Foil items.
  • Tissues.
  • Disposable nappies, food scraps, PVC like JIVE cooldrink bottles, wet waste or medical waste.

 

Please pay particular attention to this list.

We do apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

We understand these restraints are frustrating, however COVID-19 has made the recycling of the above listed items impractical for the time being and we simply do not have the manpower to render a full service.

We will keep you up-to-date, and advise the moment these restraints are removed.

 

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support during these trying times.
