Frequently asked questions about Bickenhill Recycling Centre

Where is the nearest rubbish tip to me?

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.

When does the recycling centre open?

The disposable materials that we generate in our homes, depending on whether they are treated correctly or not, end up in landfills or household waste recycling centers.

A landfill is a site designated to dispose of the waste we generate. Typically, at these designated sites, large holes are built into which garbage is buried.

The recycling centers or household waste recycling centers, are places where recyclable waste is collected, separated and laid up, to be later transferred to another area or facility for recycling or transformation.

What is a landfill?

Recycling centers vary in the waste materials they receive. Most centers are for household waste only and do not accept commercial waste or material waste from business activities.

The residues that the tips usually accept are:

  • Yard waste
  • Wood and chipboard
  • Paper
  • Metal
  • Electrical items
  • Plastics
  • Textiles and clothing
