Frequently asked questions about Girvan Household Recycling Centre

What goes in the 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 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.

What can you put in a brown recycling bin?

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.

How to book an appointment at 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.

What goes in the green recycling bin?

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.
