Frequently asked questions about Harlech 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.
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.
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.
The recycling rate in the UK has increased in recent years, but so has the generation of waste.

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.
