The UK recyclable waste service is a municipal service. However, it is only for materials generated in homes.
The cost of commercial materials is variable and depends on many factors:
- Location: in more frequented industrial estates, costs are usually lower than in rural places that are more difficult to access.
- The type of waste: some materials, such as toxic waste, need special treatment so they use more resources to manage them, and therefore their price is high.
- Volumes: the greater volume of waste you generate, the higher the price you have to pay for it. However, if the amounts produced are tons, you may get a reduction in the payment for handling your waste.
It is better to contact your nearest recycling center by phone or email to check the final cost.
In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:
- Newspapers and magazines
- Unwanted mail
- Telephone directories and catalogs
- Cereal boxes (without the plastic liner)
- Egg cartons
- Greeting cards
- Drink and food cans
However, not always the container for dry recyclables is blue. Some municipalities use red recycling containers or some even issue blue and red containers for this type of material.
To have precise information, you can consult your nearest recycling center.
Brown bins are not that common in the UK. However, if the town hall to which you belong has them, this is what you can deposit in these containers:
The brown containers are for mixed recycling in most of the country’s municipalities where this color is issued. These mixed recycling materials include:
- Plastic bottles
- Food cans
- Beverage cans
- Aerosol sprays
- Aluminum foil (including trays)
- Glass bottles and jars
However, you must make sure what type of materials you should deposit in your brown container by contacting your nearest recycling center directly, since in some municipalities the brown containers are intended for organic waste from the garden and food waste.
