Frequently asked questions about Brunswick Recycling Centre
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.
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.
In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:
- Newspapers and magazines

- 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.

Recycling symbols are those images that appear on all kinds of products, articles and packaging so that consumers know what type of waste they are (recyclable or non-recyclable) and what material they are made of.
Recycling symbols are important because they guide us to manage our waste well. However, there are some products and packaging that have not been properly labeled and do not contain a recycling label.
If you have waste that you don’t know how to classify, contact your nearest recycling center.
The recycling rate in the UK has increased in recent years, but so has the generation of waste.
