Frequently asked questions about Hamilton And Blantyre Recycling Centre

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.

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.

  • Cardboard
  • Unwanted mail
  • Telephone directories and catalogs
  • Cereal boxes (without the plastic liner)
  • Egg cartons
  • Greeting cards
