Frequently asked questions about Kenmare 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 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.

Where is my nearest rubbish tip?

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.
