Materials that are not recyclable or are not properly separated will generally end up in a landfill. A landfill is a very large holes built into certain designated spaces for that function.
Until a few years ago, the waste was piled up in the places designated to be dumps, but today in modern and well-managed landfills, large holes are built in which the garbage is buried, with a system of layers that isolates the waste. of the air and water, which has significantly reduced the contamination of the environment by contact with toxic residues. However, landfills still represent an important source of pollution that affects the environment and human beings.
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.
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.
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.
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.
