Farthinghoe Recycling and Reuse Centre

Opening times and location

We run Farthinghoe Recycling and Reuse Centre, which is located west of Brackley.

It’s open seven days a week, 9:00am to 5:00pm and you can recycle a range of materials. The site closes at mid day on Christmas Eve and is closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

You can also take along things to be reused if they are in good condition.

The recycling centre is on the A422 between Brackley and Banbury, about one mile west of Farthinghoe. It's signposted from the road, so you can't miss it.
