About Us

Oxford Direct Services is made up of two companies that work together to deliver cost-effective public and commercial services.

Established in 2012, Oxford Direct Services was transformed into a wholly-owned social enterprise in 2018. Why? So that we can continue returning millions of pounds to the Council through the savings and returns generated from our commercial services. These savings and returns are used for core Council services, to offset cuts in Government grants and to create more jobs for the people of Oxfordshire.

We’re committed to efficient and environmentally responsible services for all. And, with a city population of 152,000, 46,000 commuters and an estimated 9.5 million visitors a year, it’s important that we continue to task reliable, experienced, local work forces with the job.  

While the City Council is our largest customer as we empty bins, clean streets and maintain parks and properties, we provide important, customisable and innovative services to commercial businesses and organisations, too.

All Services Offered

We offer a range of services, from pest control to highway maintenance. For more information on the services that we offer, explore the eight categories below. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquiries you might have.

The refurbishment of Barton Play Centre was completed to an extremely high standard. We found the works to be very un-intrusive and contained, with the large team of trades people involved contributing to the efficiency of the works. The finished result is superb and we are delighted.
