Bulk Oil Buying Scheme
Community First Oxfordshire runs a county-wide bulk oil buying scheme. The bulk oil buying scheme brings communities together to make the most of joint buying power so that savings can be made and passed on to customers. On average members of the syndicate save £50 on a 1,000 litre oil delivery. There are environmental benefits to the scheme too. Buying in bulk can reduce the number of trips a tanker makes, reducing fuel consumption, pollution and traffic.
