Frequently asked questions about Kilchoan Recycling Centre

Which recycling centre can I use?

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.

Recycling symbols and what they 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.

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.
