Frequently asked questions about Gerpins Lane Recycling Centre

What do recycling symbols mean?

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.

What rubbish can I take to the tip?

The recycling centers handle different schedules depending on the municipality in which it is located and the capacity and personnel they have. To find out the hours of the recycling center closest to you, you can access this website. Each tip has its own web page, where you can find the opening and closing hours in the “Opening hours” section.

The opening and closing hours usually vary depending on the day of the week, above you can find the working hours for each day of the week.

Where is my nearest recycling centre?

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.

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.

How much recycling is actually recycled in the UK?

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.
