Frequently asked questions about Birkenshaw Recycling Site

What can you put in a blue recycling bin?

In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:

  • Paper
  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Cardboard
  • 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.

What goes in green recycling box?

Green recycling bins are typically the designated bins for depositing recyclable glass materials. However, this may vary depending on the municipality in which you are located. For example, in some municipalities the green color in the containers is used for dry recyclable materials.

It’s important not to confuse containers for glass recyclables or dry recyclables with wheelie bins that are for green yard waste.

To be sure of what you should deposit in your green container, you can contact your nearest recycling center and obtain more detailed information.

How much recycling is actually recycled?

The recycling rate in the UK has increased in recent years, but so has the generation of waste.

The percentage that is recycled in the UK so far is approximately 45% of the waste generated.

The latest report from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) indicates that the waste generated in British homes amounts to approximately 26 million tonnes of waste each year, of which only 12 million are recycled. The other 14 million tons end up in landfills.

How to book a slot for recycling centre?

To visit a household waste recycling center you need to book an appointment in advance. To book an appointment at your nearest recycling center, you can visit their website and book your appointment online.

If the website of your tip does not have this function enabled, you can contact your nearest tip by phone to schedule your visit to the recycling center. In any of the cases, after your booking, you should receive a confirmation email.

Where is my nearest rubbish tip?

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.
